Hello,

I'm trying to decide what tranny controller to use for my transmission. I have a 6bt mated to an a518 and a 4r70W that i plan on mating to a 4bt. I may switch to the 48re on both accounts. The a518 is a non-lock up tc, but i can build it strong pretty cheaply. The ford is still up on the air. I have a 99f150 4x4 Lariat only to discover that the cab caves on impact. I'm building it for my sons so i won't be building it. I have found a 98 with the 4R70W tranny. I have access to a ford auto small block adapter, flexplate and starter pretty inexpensively. So, i'd like to find a ford overdrive tranny with a small block bolt pattern. I've even considered building an older ford AOD, but think it would be inferior to may modern trannys as far as driveablity. The other extreme would be building an Allison 6 speed. Too many options. I've combed through the tranny sticky and know that many different combos work, but all in all the dodge stuff seems to be less expensive.

Bottom line, how well does the Megashift work with the 48RE? any other suggestions will be well received.
