kinda thought this... I really lost intrest in being able to put that tranny in. its been a few years and I really miss that car. Many life changes and so I have pulled the Cobra engine as well. I had a Lightning (gen1) short block in the corner and I have decided to combine the two and put a 5.8L in the lil Cobra w/ the AOD-E. I did some research and thing the larger engine with the 24# injectors will trick the Automatic GT EEC-v and it may just run okay..yes I know..GET A TUNE!! sheesh lolwe shall see if it even runs well first.
