Default Gearbox ratios

I wonder what differences the numbers say between a stock 1.6 8v gearbox and a 16v gearbox. Saxo ph1 1.6 8v (89hp) engine.

Found these on the forums, can anyone explain me what the differences are

1587 cc (vtr)
1st===3.417:1
2nd===1.810:1
3rd===1.276:1
4th===1.026:1
5th===0.767:1
rev===2.500:1
final drive===3.765:1

1587 cc (vts)
1st===3.417:1
2nd===1.950:1
3rd===1.360:1
4th===1.050:1
5th===0.850:1
rev===2.500:1
final drive===3.938:1

Okay so in the UK market, ALL VTS cars are 1.6 16v, and all VTR cars are 1.6 8v.

What we call a "VTS" is actually the standard box that comes with the 1.6 16v engine. it's a shorter gearbox because the final drive is shorter.

Use something like this http://www.apexgarage.com/tech/gear_ratios.shtml will help
