The 4R70W evolved from the AODE. The AODE evolved from the AOD and the AOD was devolped from the C-4/FMX transmissions.
Hey thanks for the info....This is off subject but its electronic so you having to carry the computer from donor car over to ure pickup? I have a straight 6 that one day plan to add the aod. it should be easy swap cause ford small blocks have same bolt pattern as 240 straight six. i just got to find the flywheel and converter that will work with set up.[/quote]
No sir. I have an H.O. 5.0L fuel injected engine, I pulled from a totalled out '90 Mustang GT, that will eventually replace my carbed inline 240-6.
I have an A9P EEC-IV engine processor (from a '92 5.0L Mustang) that's designed for an engine that had an automatic (AOD) behind it, (the A9L EEC-IV engine processor was designed for 5.0L engines with a standard transmission).
The EEC-IV, itself, has no control over the transmission. The PCM (powertrain Control Module) for transmission control wasn't integrated into the ECM (Engine Control Module) [in the Mustangs], unitl 1994 when the 5.0L engines in the '94/'95 Mustangs were being coupled to the AODE's.
To control the shifting of the 4R70W, I have a stand-alone, programmable, Optishift shift unit from Baumann Electronic Controls. I can tailor the shift points (up or down) as well as manipulate the transmission's line pressures with the stand-alone unit. I can also set the controller to operate under the stock, factory shift settings.
The company name recently changed to, "U.S. Shift.com" & the controller name was changed to, "Quick 1," but this is the same exact shift controller I have. It just has a a different face plate on it.
