Will a 4r70w.....

This is probably a stupid question but....will the o/d work in a 4r70w in an older (pre computer) car? Isn't the o/d electronically controlled?

A lot more functions than just the O/D are computer controlled in that transmission. To use a 4R70W without a compatible PCM would require a standalone aftermarket controller. Baumann sells one. http://www.optishift.com/
