Martine.... Send Jordan a PM(Private Message).
I'm saying all this to help you now and in the future.........people who've posted in this thread are correct. You having a 3.0 now, and going to do an auto swap with a 5.0 in the same truck, means absolutely nothing...whatever is needed for a 5.0 swap is needed for your swap, including a trans that'll bolt to the engine and all the associated electronics(or the lack of). Almost everything 3.0 is going to be removed anyway. By your opening post in this thread, we know nothing but to assume you have a 3.0 manual and you want to convert it to an auto.....an AUTO 3.0. You need to be clear on your posts. If you intend to convert this said 3.0 manual to a 5.0 auto, this needs to be said in the first post. Being clear with your question at hand in the first post will get you clear answers. Not being clear, like in this thread, leads to confusion. How can people help if they don't have all the information needed from the thread starter? There's no need to jump down our throats because you lacked telling us a pretty darn important piece of info on your swap.
Bottom line: speak to us like we have no clue what you're working on and we don't know your intentions in the end.
