to hold second ? what does that mean ?
The AOD has 3 gear selector positions: 1, 2/3, OD. That's all fine and well for everyday driving, but doesn't help for high-performance driving, when you'll likely want to hold 2nd. Fox Mustang guys found that by shifting from 1st to second, then quickly back to first, they could get the AOD to hold second. The problem with this is that it taxes the transmission, reducing its life greatly. The epoxy mod basically makes the shift pattern 1-2-3/OD, where OD won't engage if you're accelerating.
Talk to SilverFox
over at clickclickracing, or go to his website (www.silverfoxtrans.com
). He'll get you squared away if you want to go with a modified valve body and/or OD switch.
Here's a link
info on the TransGo shift kit
to the TransGo kit. They've also got a video (circa 1987) that helps with installation, as the instructions aren't the best.
does the AOD require any specific headers
I bought the same headers as ez, but for GT40P heads. I'm pretty sure the collector location is the same, however. Here's a link
to some pics I posted of how they fit, albeit with a C4. I am concerned with the passenger-side collector, as the AOD flange is quite a bit thicker.
