4k is about the max I hope mine will cost installed, but I would expect an upgraded torque converter for towing. I should be getting a quote soon. 4k every 10-20 years is a lot better than buying a new truck, that's for sure...

As for the Mach1, after 28 years and too much money, I got it close to what I wanted including a 475 hp 395W, Astro A5 trans, 3.5" alum DS, 9" 3.50:1 rear, R&P tilt steering, and a bad ass lowered stance. Then I broke my left ankle and could not shift worth a crap, so I sold it and now have a 2016 GT/CS that is much safer and just as fun but has many options that just can't be added to a classic w/o a huge budget.

I found a good used trans out of a 97 F250 7.3, seller says it was rebuilt 35k miles ago. Will it fit and replace my 4R100 in my 01 Excursion? I'm not sure if it's the E40D.

Thanks again,

I'm pretty sure the 4r100 started 99, where the e40d ended in 97. will have to wait for the more experienced but I think there might be some issues putting an e40d in place of a 4r100. It should bolt right in but lengths might be different, linkage, wiring connector, tailshaft yoke. another concern might be your pcm is programmed for a 4r100; sending those codes to a e40d might be an issue as well, idk.

4 grand for a rebuild seems a bit steep, seems that you could get one from ford for not much more. I know there are some aftermarket trannys that are slightly built for less than 4k but that also doesn't include the swap.

Yes, it is an E4OD, and no, it will not work in your Excursion. You must have a 4R100.

OP, I just got one quote for 2495 installed for a basic unit. Upgraded clutches as desired began at 400 for 'redline'. Upgraded converters began at 200. I asked about a nationwide warranty and he was confident enough to say, "I'll give you one", only once in 10 years has he lost that gamble and had to pay. When I asked about a shift kit he said that was old tech...huh?
I'm also getting a quote from my pro mech bro-in-law, but his source is taking a while to get back to him.

OP, update on trans quote thru my BIL.
$1636 plus 800 core plus 186 shipping plus tax and install labor. 18m/18k warr and about a week to build plus shipping time. Supposed to have the latest updates but w/o custom options. Optional 36/100 warr for 150.
I just gave the go ahead to order and we'll probably mod the valve body for quicker shifting, maybe another 100?
I should probably fill it with synthetic from the get go, right guys?

Synthetic is better, but the dino fluids are getting so good that there isn't a huge difference any longer.

I guess I'm surprised the OP or anyone else is not curious about the trans source...Transtar Industries. Nationwide warranty.

I never bought a complete trans from Transtar, but when I had a shop I used to buy all of my transmission parts from them.
