"Forward" pattern or "Reverse" pattern

I will be ordering a Turbo 400 tranny with full manual valve body and need to decide on a forward or reverse pattern. Can someone please educate me on this subject so I can make my decision and what pattern are you using ?

Thanks again

i was told for a street driven car, go with the forward man valve body. you are not supposed to downshift a reverse body or they say it can blow up.
there is no intermediate band on a reverse body so there is nothing to slow it down. ken jett knows all about this, i hope he jumps in.
