Question Gear Ratio BorgWarner married to LT85 gearbox

Range Rover Classic 1973,
Could anybody tell me if I can use a Borg-Warner transfer box from a 1994 RR classic 3.9 efi Automatic to a LT85 (santana) 5 speed gear box.
The engine is a standard 3.5 V8. I know it fits but my question is: does the gear ratio fit (the car is for road use only).

It should work fine as I believe the LT230 and the BW case had similar ratios

1972 MGB
2006 Bonatti Grey LR3 Proud Rhino Bumper, Baja Rack and TF underbody skid plates almost 33's lol
2007 Chawton White LR3 Proud Rhino lift rods
1983 Trident Green 110, TerraFirma suspension, and bumpers
1991 Range Rover Classic Hunter Eastnor Green

You might find that you will need to change the prop shafts as well.
You will also have to worry about the different handbrake setups.
