01 would be the last year for the 5.0 explorer they went to the 4.6 in 02My Lentech Street Turdinator Plus AOD just died for the second time in less than 5000 miles, so I'm looking for a replacement. I'm leaning heavily toward a 4R70W with a Baumann controller. Now I just have to find one...I think I'm going to just get a used one from a junkyard this time instead of paying megabucks for a rebuilt one from a shop who supposedly knows what they're doing but sold me (twice :cursing a big pile of crap instead.
For a Ford SB, you'll need 4R70W from a 3.8L Mustang or a 5.0L 4x2 Explorer in order for the bellhousing to match up to the block. From my research, 98-02 is the optimal year range. Newer than '02 have some upgrades, but don't have provisions for a VSS or speedo cable.
Lots of good info here, but it takes some wading through: Click Click Racing - Click Click Racing
