4T40E per Model Year?

On eBay I see these two trannies right now...

"1997-04 4T40E Auto Transmission Chevy Malibu Cavalier"
"98-04 Pontiac 4T40E 2.2l 2.4l Sunfire Auto Transmission"

I own a '96 GA SE which has a tranny slowly failing. No way
I am going to invest $750+ in a reman unit, but I am curious
which transmissions would work in my car. In the event I do
come across something used/salvaged that could be worth it.

Are there differences between the models and/or years that
would make certain models not work with my car? Any ideas
on where I can find out what other models use the same one
as my '96 GA SE?

Thanks!

I was assuming the 4T40E was for 4-cyl and 4T60E for 6-cyl.
I guess that is what I get for assuming anything. Thanks
for the info, that is very helpful.

Is the 4T60E tougher than the 4T40E? Or does the number
in the tranny model not really tell you anything about them?
