Re: has anyone ever do this

I did this swap a few months ago for a friend, everything is a direct bolt in, all that needed to be switched over was the trans cooler fittings. I also switched the gear selector shaft (not sure I needed to after I did it) very easy swap, good upgrade as the 4R100 has better internals

will u sell me the kit or the parts, well am getting ready to install some 175cc injectors with 80% larger nozzles and intercooler and elec fuel system and a d66 turbo that is about all i want to do to it and a oil pump one day, with those modds would it be best to rebuild the e4od or 4r100 and with me runing a 3:55 gear an't the gear ratio in the 4r100 higher in o/d than the e4od. thanks

If you are looking for a 4r100, the late 2001 and up is the one you want. They already have the good planetaries. Try to avoid the diode version.
