      ok, I've done some research to do this swap, and I ahve come across a C4/D20 combo out of an EB that I can get.... now I know I will need the C5 Bellhousing, flexplate and Torque converter.

      But my main question is the cooling lines.... can I use the lines from the A4LD or do I need to cutom bend and run new ones to the tranny cooler? Thanks for any help.

      you can use the braided rubber line, like fuel hose.

      yeah, there's not much pressure. rubber hose and hose claps do the job great.

      I have a seperate question now....

      I need a C5 Torque convertor, well my question is, I"m using this Explorer for rock crawling, would it be a bad idea to put in a higher stall TC?? I'm not that knowledgable about them, but I would like some info if it would be a good idea, so I can buy it while I'm puttin all this together, thanks for any help on this question.

      You don't need a stall converter for crawling. I never get out of first gear while on the rocks.

      A stall speed converter affects the shifting, not an issue for rock crawling since you are rarely over 5 mph.

      If you wanted to race it, that would be a different story
