Re: Need help

the gear ratio isnt going to mesh up v6 to v8, i dont kno why youd even want to put a v6 transmission into a v8

lol if you do that you might as well look for another tranny. the v6 tranny cant hold that much power and will fail the first time you get on it

My dad is running a 4r70w from a 2000 v6 in his 72 mustang with manual valvebody and a 4k stall converter and it's holding up real well.

Re: Need help

IMO i would go to your local pull apart and try to find a v8 tranny. You dont want to risk putting a lighter duty v6 tranny on your v8. There will be a lot going wrong if you decide to go that route and will end up costing you more money

Re: Need help

Yah if it's a manual it is different, but I believe the same 4R70W was used in the 96-04 v6's, GT's and Mach 1's. So in that case an auto transmission would work, unless the bellhousing pattern is different, might want to check into that. The AODE was used on the 94-95 v6's/GT's.

Actually the v6s bell will only bolt up to the 94/5 5.0 cars. The 4r was used in all 96 &up cars, but the Machs have a 4r75w. (I think)

Yah that could be true...I wasn't 100% sure about the fitment between years and models. I remember hearing something about the Machs having a different auto trans. but I found it hard to believe Ford doing so, as it probably wouldn't have been cost friendly.
