2002 ranger 4.0 with 98 5.0 swap

Alright guys i swapped a 98 expo 5.0 engine and trans into my 02 ranger. I changed the awd t case for a 98 f150 manual shift t case with vss stuff4406. I have wired the vss into ground and grey black wire on harness. Also i was told to get the g force transducer from an expo and wire it into abs well i did ill post what i did in next post but orange and white went to pin 1 yellow went to pin 13 orange and black went to pin 14 and grey and black was run from harness to pin 19 on abs module. Also changed ranger abs out for expo as what his 2001-newer ranger swap called for. I also have a solid axle and have had it for some time. Even before swap. I had pats egr and cats deleted with a tune. Can someone help me figure the vss out. I read some people use a 2001 2.5 ranger gem but i cant find one. Only can find 98 and 99 2.5 rangers around here. Is it possible to have a tune wrote around yhe vss. My speedometer on cluster works and all other guages work. Trans feels like its in limp.

I did use the transducer module from inside frame rail. I found this on ranger power sports

I: remove the-ABS module-from the ranger, its connector is connector C135.

II: mount the explorer “G-Force Transducer” to the ranger. It mounts on the drivers side frame rail directly next to the fuel pump. Its connector is connector-C312.

III: there are three wires coming from the “G-Force Transducer”, an OG/BK wire circuit # 886, a YE wire circuit # 887, and an OG/WH wire circuit # 836. These three wires need to be extended all the way to the ABS connector C135.

IV: connect the OG/BK wire circuit # 886, to pin-#1-4 on C135. This pin on the connector will be empty.

V: connect the YE wire, circuit # 887 to pin # 13 on C135. you will have to disconnect the wire that is currently there, it is the-brake-pressureswitch-and will no longer be needed.

VI: connect the OG/WH wire, circuit # 836 to pin-#1-on connector C135. This pin on the connector will be empty.

VII: pin # 19 on connector C135 is the VSS signal output, circuit #-C679. Connect a GY/BK wire to pin # 19 on connector C135 and splice it into pin # 32 on connector-C146-(the grey firewall connector). This will tie the new conditioned VSS signal into all the other systems.

VIII: plug the explorer 4WABS module into connector C135 and bolt the module onto the ABS system.#
