  21. Hi mate I have one mk1 running a type 9 with a 3.77 and one car with a 3.9 and a 2000E. The 2000e is a combo ideal for all driving except motorway cruising 75 is about 5000 in top not that relaxed. The type 9 gives you all that the 2000e does but with an overdrive 5th for motorways. So depends where you will be driving your car most. Remember also wheels diameter and tyre profile. I have a spreadsheet that for any classic ford gearbox and rear axle and tyre prfile gives you mph in each gear. If you or anyone else wants a copy pm me your email. Cheers Brendan
