02 ranger with 98 expo 5.0 and 4r70w

Alright fellas i need to find a 98 expo 5.0 evtm. Haven't been able to find one. I've had some people send me 42 pin harness wiring pinouts and followed to a t. Engine runs and ive checked and changed plugs, wires, and coils. Engine has no egr, cats, or pats all have been disabled with tune. I am still running front two oxygen sensors which are also new. I did do a trick flo stage 1 cam and matching spring valve kit. Spring valve kit and valve job done by shop. New timing chain and i did dot to dot when put back together. Engine runs and fuel pressure has been checked and is aprox 33 psi. I may have a vacuum leak somewhere but i dont have a gage for that. When i put the truck in rev or drive most the time the rpms drop to about 200-300 or it stalls. Its fine when its in park or neutral. Also when truck goes from 1-2 the truck falls on its face. Accumulator springs have been replaced even though mine weren't broke like most people have found and while there i changed all valve body gaskets careful not to lose the check *****. Trans did this before the gasket and spring change. Thanks for any help. Its greatly appreciated

Found one for sale on eBay.

I spent awhile looking for EVTMs back when I did my swap. They're usually listed as "Wiring Diagrams."
