    Used 4R70W modding ?

    Thats for your guys help with helping find what was wrong with my GT 4R70W , so I found a 01 4R70W 30,000 , paid 400 for it , I opened it up tonight and it still has the yellow plug , so Im the first one to crack it open , I cleaned it up , removed the Valve Body , and 1-2 / 2-3 springs , when I get the blown trans out of my mustang I will swap out my drilled S/plate .

    My ? is should I do anything to my new/used 4R70W , before I install it next week , maybe new accumulators or open her up replace something that does not need special tools to do ?
    And is the 2001 converter stall different then the 2004 ?

    Thanks for helping out a Mustang guy , as this site is the best for 4R70W info , the Auto Mustang is kind of like the black sheep on most Mustang forums , so not much info can be found out about the 4R70W !

    The members here are really great people! As a new Marauder owner myself, I have had a lot of questions to ask, all which have been answered here. The beauty of it all is that you get answers from people who know the vehicle and aren't just "hacks" like at some other forums. I owe a lot of thanks to this forum and gladly contribute whenever I am able to...

    I'm no expert, but I'd change out the OD shaft/stub. Weak point in the tranny. There are numerous threads here on it. The MM seems to respond well to a higher stall TC, Ford actually went higher with the 04 vs what came in the 03. I believe there is a NIB 3000 stall TC in the classifieds here for cheap.

    Not too sure what stall you have now, but these heavier MM demand a 2600-2800 minimum stall upwards to 3500 if s/ced. I would have to think 2800 would be more than enough in a lighter weight mustang if used for a driver/play car. I see you are running 4.10's, those matched with a 2800 stall plus good drag radials i would think would put you closer to the low 1.8's on your sixty. Wait till more advice rolls in as i'm NOT a stall pro. Also make sure and list anything else done to your car if not in your sig, dyno #'s, etc.
