4T60 / 440-T4 / TH440 Transmission ID Tag Decoding

How to read Transmission Tags:

Take a look at this 97 GS tranny tag located on the back of the housing (same location for 440-T4). If you notice the code 7HKB - the 7 stands for the year (1997 in this case). Your tag should also denote the year. The three letter combo identifies the ratio.

RPO Codes:

F79: 2.97
GX3: 3.33

Transmission Tag Boadcast Codes and Ratio Identification:

Obviously, this list is very incomplete. The best source of these codes is from GM service manuals for their respective years. If you have a manual with codes, please add them here. Finding these codes is very difficult and to my knowledge this is the most complete list on the internet thus far.
