Looking for someone/some site that has experience in installing an AODE behind a EFI 5.0.

What year/model automatic did you use?
Is there some list of donor trans for a 5.0?
What did you do for a trans mount?
Where there any wiring connections?
Difference between an A9P and an A9L computer?

as you can see ...lots of questions.

Someone point me in the right direction...
tks

For an AODE, you'll need a 94-95 computer to control the trans and engine, or you can keep your ECU and buy a transmission controller.

Baumannengineering.com has a lot of good info on the trans. You should be able to find your donor list and answer some of your other trans questions there. They also sell a trans control module that's been well reviewed so the trans will work independant of the EFI computer. The 89-93 computers are generally preferred for swaps anyway, I'm told the A9L has a more aggressive tune than the '94-95 EFI. IIRC, the A9P is for a stick car, the A9L is for an AOD car. Both computers are thought to be among the better choices for their tune parameters, with the A9L having a slight edge (supposedly to compensate for the extra parasitic loss the auto trans has), but I don't think any of the MAF computers are dramatically different from each other.

LOVE the photo! A few years ago I toured the "Aluminum Overcast", a B-17. Smaller inside than I thought!

I believe it is the other way around, A9L only for stick cars, and A9P for an automatic although it works with stick cars as well.
