Tranny and rear end identification help

I have a'90 foxbody and I know it has a t5 trans, but I was wondering if there was a way to tell what generation it is, and I think I have a 3.73 rear end but I'm but sure, neither one is stock so I can't use any codes from the car(recently bought it and trying to learn it inside and out incase I encounter a problem)

there should be a id tag on the trans. it will have the number on it. there is a link in the useful information stickies thread that should help.

the rear end should also have a tag on it. but if it doesnt you can spin the tire one revolution and count how may times the driveshaft spins. 3 3/4 turn should be 3.73s
