How about a link to the article? Or if you don't have a link, the name of the publication and the month/issue?

FYI, here are the ratios for the 6L80E:

First: 4.02
Second: 2.36
Third: 1.53
Fourth: 1.15
Fifth: 0.85
Sixth: 0.67

And here is a chart with speed, rpm, etc. with the 6L80E in a TBSS (with the most likely rear end gears, 3.42's).
