2006 2007 V6 Flexplate differences

Hi everyone. This is my first time posting and I was hoping someone could help me figure out what direction to take regarding my 2007 Mustang 4.0l automatic. I picked it up for cheap to use as a daily driver. It was cheap because the motor was seized (which I knew). I was able to pick up a 2006 4.0L with 80k on it for only $250 from a friend. The 2006 does not have a flexplate. After checking, I see the flexplates have different part # (2006=4R3Z6375AA; 2007=1L2Z6375CA), so it looks like I need to buy a 2006 flexplate, correct?
But I also see the torque converters are different too (2006=4R3Z7902AARM; 2007=7L2Z7902ARM). Do I also have to buy a 2006 torque converter and will the 2006 torque converter work with my 2007 transmission?
Thanks for the help!!
Steve

Where did you get the part numbers from?

Take it you called your local dealer? I would keep the torque convertor the same as the trans, fly wheels should, aka, should be the same.

I did a search on a Ford dealership website to get the part numbers. The 2005-2006 4.0 V6 torque converters and flex plates had different part numbers than the ones for 2007-2010 Mustangs 4.0 V6. I can't seem to find the reason for the changes between 2006 and 2007. There must be reason why different part numbers are listed. Is there a balancing/weight difference?? I don't want to put everything back together only to find a vibration or some other issues and then have to tear things apart again.

If you have all the parts for a 2007, put all the 2007 stuff on it.
