I posted this on another site which has a few guys looking to do the same swap, but I figured I'd share the love over here for anyone interested. Here is what I have so far in the parts department for doing my manual to automatic swap using a 4r70w out of a 2001 Mustang GT. I am still waiting on my converter, flex-plate, cooler, and a few other parts to come in, but here is what I have so far!! There are some small parts that I forgot to take pics of such as the cable bracket, shift position sensor, converter access plate, and some minor hardware. I'll post pics of that stuff when I can.
Here's the trans with the automatic cross member already installed on it for shipping purposes. It isn't new, but with only 47k on the clock, should be more than capable enough to take some abuse after I upgrade a few things inside.
Just a quick pic of the input shaft and bell housing area.
In this pic, you'll see the auto brake pedal assembly, automatic transmission wiring harness, automatic shifter assembly, dipstick and tube, shift and kickdown cables, engine trans separator plate, and steering column trim (which lacks the little push button key release crap found on the 5-speed models)
Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to change your driveshaft to do this swap. You just need the front yoke from the auto DS (good to know if you already hav an aluminum DS like I do)
I have already hooked up the new computer to read it with my tuning software. I needed to contact Sniper to get the template for the new computer in order for the Delta Force software to work with it. Swapping out to an automatic computer is required for this swap. I don't care what anyone says. The manual computer does not have the capability to control the 4r70w.
Like I said before, I am still waiting on some parts to come in before the swap actually begins. But it is getting very close. I'll be sure to update and post as much info as possible to help out others that may be considering doing the swap themselves.
