    Sorry no. The 92 used the A4LD and the computer controlled torque convertor lockup and the shift into OD. The 96 used either the 4R55E or the 5R55E and the computer controls everything. I suppose you could try and backwards engineer it, old PCM etc, but I think the effort and probability of other problems make it unworkable. So, again, sorry but no.

    In relation to this thread I've been pondering about this issue: According to my owner's manual I have a 5-speed auto. What do they consider the 5th gear? I have 1,2,D, and R on the column. My dad's '03 explorer is considered a 5-speed also but he has 1,2,3,D and R on his column. Do they count the OD on mine or is mine actually a 4-speed?

    Back to the topic:
    What kind of motor does the Sport have? OHV or SOHC? I think there is a difference in trannys with each motor.

    "This trans" ? Your 96 to 96 sounds promising... what you got now and what you thinking of using? There were some cross over years where there was a 4R55E AND a 5R55E.. ideally i'd want to go like for like, since the computer comes into play with these trannies. 4r for 4R, 5R for 5R. Find out and let us know.

    Your dad's and your's have basically the same tranny. Ford didn't come out with the 5 speed auto until '97 and they didn't bother to redesign the shifter to include an extra gear so it still only has 1,2,D,R and then O/D on/off on the column. Your's is still a 5 speed though.
