I have a 89 thunderbird LX, with the 3.8 n/a
now i bought a 5.0 for 650 bucks with 97k miles on it,

does anyone know what tranny came in my year of the bird?
was it a AOD-E?
i think i read that somewhere

and will the 5.0 bolt up to it because i have seen 5.0 birds around my year and im HOPING it does

thanks VERY much in advance want to get this project underway

the 5.0 had an AOD.. the 3.8 had an AOD but... DO NOT use the 3.8 tranny with a 5.0... you will rip it to itty bitty pieces... and if you have a 7.5" rear upgrade it. you will need v8 springs too.
