97 Mercury Cougar Xr-7 4.6
I think i got this answer on my other post but i wanted to make sure that im understanding correctly...Im headed to the u-pull-it in a few days and to get myself another 4r70w. what i think i was told is to get one from something in 02 with that trans. But im curious if thats the case and if so what models should i try to get one from(most common). also if that is a direct bolt up replacement for my 97 coug with the 4.6 and 4r70w. If the 02 is the same as the 97 in means of all the plugs, lines,ect. I wanna go with the best replacement but i dont wanna change plugs or anything. torque converter and flex plate out of a mkiii is better then what i have but again im not sure if thats something i should do. I dont wanna chance having to be pulling this trans after putting it in over something i didnt need to change. but if the 02 will be all the same that i can just toss er up in and be good then thats what i wanna do. i keep seeing how the 02 is better then the 97's but no clue how/ TIA!!!!
