Final drives:
79:18 = 4.389 (1995+ & Convertible 1.0L/3 cylinder)
78:19 = 4.105 (GT/GTi & 1989-1994 1.0L/3 cylinder)
72:19 = 3.789 (1995+ 1298cc & XFI/1.0L/3 cylinder)
74:21 = 3.524 (pre-1995 SOHC 1.3L/4 cylinder)
This is from Geometroforum.com, I was member 278 from way back. Just count the big number.
Remember these are 9% jumps with each change.
The late cars have taller tires than the early cars.
I would verify your 4.4 ratio and look for a 4.1.
18% is a very big jump, you may have trouble pulling 5th gear with a short cam.
My sedan was a real pig, no passing on two lane roads unless you were going downhill.
