Re: Anyone swapped in a 5.0 w/AODE tranny?

If you do this, make SURE you've got an AODE and not the crappy ford Metric transmission that often came behind 5.0s. The Metric looks different, and has metric stamped into the trans pan--but often the pans were replaced and I know of at least one very unhappy fella who swapped a 5.0 into his car without realizing he had brought a Metric along with. The metric is much weaker and has different gear ratios (and not nearly as many performance parts available).
