    ok the 3 digit code on that plate denotes the most important information........it tells the gear ratio of the transmission failure to install the exact same coded transmission will result in a neverending gear ratio error code be sure you use the exact same trans id that came from the car... the gear ratio is set by the number of teeth the input shaft gear and the driven input gear and the differential sungear tooth count it is imperative that these be replaced exactly or you will be unhappy to have to pull the trans a second time. all of these tooth counts are internal inside the trans and cannot be counted unless unit is apart

    It seems like your going about this in the wrong way,,,on the side of your present tranny,,there should be a name plate,,that indicates : transmission manufacture location,,model year,,and transmission type.
