Re: wat do i need

Not 100% sure if the flexplates are the same, if not get one for a 94-95gt. You will need to install a switch for the push button overdrive. Someone else will need to give you the scope on which shifter to use. At least run a 2800-3200 stall. A 4r70w for a push rod engine would be a better choice, just a thought. Have you converted to mass air?

That's A LOT of cam for e7 heads. That cam makes peak power past the RPM point where E7's stop breathing....

Only the 88 California cars had mass air. Don't go with the AOD find an AODE or 4r70W. The switch isn't hard to hook up. The 89-92 cars in the junkyard are AODs. If you don't have mass air that 89 will make a perfect donor.

The AOD is weak & a power robber. You can get a 4r70w from a 98 v6 stang or v8 explorer, not sure of the year model. The driveshafts are the same lenght. The aod & aode use different shaft yokes than the 4r70w. ( not 100% sure)

Re: wat do i need

Ask the junkyard owner to look that explorer up in his data base to verify the transmission type. If you buy it I would have it looked over before installing it to make sure it's in good condition.

Re: wat do i need

a PROPERLY set up AOD robs no more power than an E or 4r.

First an second gear are a little longer, but you can swap out the guts.
Weak point in the AOD is the input shaft. You can get a hardened one through many aftermarket vendors.
