Ive got a built 4R70W and Iam going to be putting it in an 06 gt. It has a 3650 in it now so I went with a manual valve body.
I assume you mean putting a 4R70W into an 05? Or building a 5R55S?

If its 4R70W, I can give you some pointers.

What about the cross member do I have to get a different 1? And drive shaft can I just change the flat flange to a slip yoke?
Since you have the manual PCM, you won't need to do much, if anything.

The car I worked on had a stand alone TCM from PCS ( I think that is right ). It had software that you used to setup the shift / lock schedule. It worked great.

I am getting ready to do this to my cobra, would you guys suggest a manual or fully auto valve body>? are there any pros/cons to it at all either way? i like the idea of still shifting, but i dont like the idea of being able to accidentally shift into overdrive and destroy the tranny.

I like the manual valve body. Most of us have our o/d on a toggle switch so you cant' really "accidentally" shift into o/d.

4r70w

Let me get this straight a stock 4r70w is rated at 700 tq? so a stock one should hold on just fine if you arent making those torque numbers?

You'll need a trans cooler with a fan to keep the temp down.

I'm a little confused regarding the 2003/2004 cobra computer. I understand that the terminators didn't come with an auto trans, but is there a way to wire it up anyway? I have a FULL 4r70w setup (harness, sensors, everything) and I would like to use it with my 04 cobra motor, and 04 cobra computer. I don't want to lose the IAT1 and the MAP sensor, etc. Great article btw.

Any advice? Thanks in advance!

Actually you can use a trans controller and keep the cobra EEC. I plan to use the Baumannator with their wiring harness for the 4R70W i have built for my setup. There are other choices of controllers like Compushift and Powertrain control systems.
