M56l

Also, the L comes in 3 final drive ratios in north america... 3.77, 4.00, and.. Not sure on the third. The H only comes in 4.00 (4.45 overseas I believe as well).

I don't think any 4.45 final drive gear boxes made it to America. Those were reserved for the poverty spec 2.0 850s in europe.
 
Mine has the M56L with a 3.77 final drive ratio. The M56H looks like it would have a really tall first gear, and I thought mine had high gearing.

M56L = 3.77 x 3.38 = 12.67
M56H = 4.00 x 3.07 = 12.28

The overall gearing in first and second gear is nearly identical while the L gearbox has taller overall gearing 3rd to 5th. The early cars equipped with the L gearbox also had a variable length intake which kept the torque peak 1000rpm lower.

well they were in the 2.0 850 and phase one 70's but as you know justin engine size does not denote spec level here haha
 
Thats interesting. On my car, I have noticed it likes to be between 3-5k rpm when climbing hills, and I have noticed the tall 3rd gear (especially on windy back roads), 2nd on my car is definately tall though, as it is will do 50 mph @ 5k rpm.
 
my M56H with 4.45 and 6500 limiter with 205/55/16 gives this speeds on the limiter

57
91
124

M56l with 4.00 would give these

Does the transmission I have hold up behind the turbo motor? It is all dependent as to whether or not I can sell it, but if I can't sell it, I might make a project out of it.
