FE1 is the base H body suspension... All of those are RPO codes...

I looked at it and it did match. I thought cars with the 2.84 only topped out at 98mph. Does a lower gearing affect how quickly the engine gains RPM or does it affect the shift points?

The lower the ratio the fewer revs the engine had to spin for the car to run at speed...
So, a 3.06 would probably hit red line in first @ 39mph because the RPM'* gain faster to get the car up to speed quiker, whereas my 2.84 redlines first @ 45mph and gains speed slower because the RPM'* are slower to increase. Am I correct here?
