I don't think so, not without some modification with difference in transmissions. It's from a 4R70W and you have an AOD.

I don't think there is a length or spline difference between the AOD AODE and 4R70W. but I could be wrong.

I've come into this world with nothing and still manage to have some of it left.

it is still factory balanced and too the best of my knowledge it is still balanced, no i never installed it, just sat in the garage. i had fitment issues because of my v6 . as for weight savings, i believe its 6-7 pounds or so, this thing is extremely light. and since its rotational mass that will help quite a bit. i have mikestbird443 as 1st dibs, if he falls through, paintme205 its yours, i'll get a shipping quote asap
