Default Who knows which starter I have?

There are 2 starters I've found in places around here. There'* a huge one for $69.99 with "direct drive," and there'* a smaller one than the huge one with PMGR, or some sort of gear reduction, for $144.99. Which one is my starter? Is this gear reduction with increased spinning speed and perhaps more torque something any SSEi cars had stock? I'm going to take out the old starter either later on today or tomorrow.

Great. So, to clarify, the starters were both listed as for a car w/ supercharger and w/o supercharger. Does this mean that supercharged non-SSEis have the cheaper starter, and just because my car is an SSEi, it has the "better" one?

I actually believe that I have read here that all the */C cars got the gear reduction starter... Not %100 sure on that though

I also seem to remember something about jr's3800 posting something about them both having the same torque...

Don't the supercharged cars have less compression than NA? I imagine less torque would be needed.
