With the sleeves to fo over the dowel pins on the VB
, a 99+ (or best an 01+ VB
) can be retrofitted to any AODE/4R70W. It's more a matter of year than model IIRC. 96+ have a different thickness plate, and there are different EPC brackets - so if you update the VB
to a 96+ on a pre96 car, you'll need the correct bracket. From what I gathered from Jerry's article on our site, a 94 AODE VB
will interchange with a 94 4R70W VB
physically. There may be minor spring difference inside, but there have been dozens of those changes over the years, and none of them should be that drastic. You can't fit a pre96 VB
onto a 96+ trans (luckily).
