Not the dodge the bronco tranny is actin up no od ..... No slick 50 for me I'm a firm believer in lucus products I use it in everything tranny, oil, gas, axles, power steering and all ...might be trading the f150 in on an 02 yellow mustang for the wife gotta v6 so wayyyyy better gas mileage just in case gas gets over $5 a gallon like they say it will hopefully I'll trade the goat in next year on a f250 7.3 stroke can pull ole fast eddy at a 100 if I wanted to then lol

Nope its an a4ld only thing electronic on it is the lockup torque convertor I ran it up to 60 mph and it never shifted out the vacuum modulator is good on it I changed out the seal and put new filter and fluid and adjusted my linkage but all the other gears work fine but I'm gonna try to find a c5 for whenever I do my v8 conversion... Btw I don't know my head from a hole in the ground when it comes to trannys

You may have better luck getting a c6 to bolt to a v8 .... I have a c4 in shop however it bolts to a v6. C5s are harder to find now ill keep my eyes pealed
