Nope, the AOD and AOD-E are not similar. Same family, but there are tons of differences. The AOD is fully hydraulic with a mechanical lock-up TC (3rd and 4th gears). The AOD-E is electronic controlled with an electronic lock-up TC. How are you goint to control it? Don't say Baumann.

I would stay with an AOD, but a worked one.

i was actually thinking of using a computer and harness from maybe a 94-95 Mustang. it was just a thought. I thought it would be nicer to have it electronically controlled. But physcially are they the same tranny???
