4R70W with 5.0?

Ok I have a 1994 SC automatic, the tranny is rebuilt with around 3k miles I've thought about doing a M5R2 swap but since I have the tranny and its beefed up I might as well use it until it blows. I'm doing a 5.0 swap and need to know what to do with the wiring for the tranny since its electronically controlled. The wiring harness I have is from a 1992 Tbird Sport 5.0, I was told I need to get a EEC from a 1994-1995 Mustang GT with automatic. Is this true if so how do I need to modify the wiring or is it just to much work to bother with? any info is appreciated, Thanks Dan

You need time and patience and yes an EEC from a 94/95 Mustang GT is the "easiest" way... if I had to do it all over again I would have taken it a step further and upgraded to EEC V and did a 1998 - 2000 5.0 Explorer computer but hey, hindsight is always 20/20.

The Baumann unit is not something you want unless you like broken trannys. Do a search on the unit on this site.

Hrmm,, thats funny I consider it a darn good controller and use it daily on my 5.0L ranger with a 4r70w. 15K miles on it so far and lots of 1/4 mile passes and it shifts perfect.

I beieve anyone that has problems with it is because of user error. Even says in the instructions that theve given you enough rope to hang yourself with.

Also wanted to add the trans came from a 110K mile 98' Explorer 5.0L,, and its bone stock with no shift kit and it barks the tires easily in 2nd.

how much work is involved in making the tranny work because if its too much I might as well use an AOD and remember mine car orginally came with this tranny because its a 1994SC so I'd assume the wiring for the tranny is there.

They are not identical, and the point remains that the AODE never came in any MN12.

Anyone ever consider using the 94' 4.6L Automatic computer to control the 5.0 and 4r70w?

Same amount of injectors,
Cam & Crank sensors can be installed for DIS (thank you Explorer 5.0L)

Although,, whats the firing order of the 4.6 vs. 5.0L cant think off the top of my head,, but it would be a easy pinout change.
