I only used the transmission identification to qualify my choice. If the gears were fixed, it would depend wholly on the gear ratios as to which I would rather have, because one would be closer to an efficient range than the other with different gears.

Vehicle weight, of course, I chose 2200 LBS because I'm pretty sure the vehicles that have both of those engines weight right in around there. (Haven't looked it up, just a guess.)
