You're looking for brand new? Or rebuilt?

I looked at www.parts.com, and used a 2002 Crown Vic and 2000 Mustang as sample searches (I'm pretty certain they have 4R70W transmissions in them). Ford OEM transmissions for those vehicles listed at just under $1600...what modifications are required if you go that route? I don't know...

Dennis Reinhart has a terrific 4R70W transmission. His site: www.reinhartautomotive.com. He's busy, but very prompt at responding to emails.

If you just want a salvage yard pull, try www.greenleafauto.com. They have reasonable pricing, and several folks here have recommended them.

there have been SEVERAL low mileage 4.2L truck trannies on Ebay for CHEAP, They bolt right in but you need to change a few wires and stuff according to the 4R70W thesis on this website. 98+ truck trannies have all the good stuff for us 3.8 owners. My built tranny is out of a 2002 F150 4.2L, I'm still awaiting its arrival.

Have you asked okcbird if he has any left? I got a 2001 5.4L tranny brand-spanking-new for $850 from him. Sweet deal!

Rob, you can email me with any questions you might have concerning the transmissions. I've worked with the 4R70W's plenty.

The main difference between V6 and V8 transmissions is the amount of clutches in the clutch packs, the V8's have more, so since it's a V8 transmission you're already getting more than you would with a replacement V6 transmission. The only differences other than those noted in J-man's article is that the tailshaft seal (where the driveshaft sticks in) is different for trucks/suv's than it is for cars, it cost about $1.50 for the car one and it takes about a minute to pop the existing one out with a flat head and small hammer and them hammer the new car one in. Then do the other things mentioned in J-man's article for using a 98 up transmission in our cars and you will be set. Hope this helps and please email me at [email protected] if you have any further questions.

I can get you a good rate on shipping too.

If you haven't messed with transmissions before you might just want to have a shop repin the harness for you.

Or I can explain and provide you diagrams, like I said though, please reply back in email, this is much easier and faster for me to respond.

I would tend to think that a stock torque converter, from the factory and for a production car, is built for up to about 400 ft-lbs max, just to put a number out there. I could be wrong though, since I don't know the specs for the Mark VIII torque converter. I would be surprised if a stocker was rated to handle a 700 horsepower motor.
