oops bolt ...

a 88 ford should have the aod trany in that case the 351 w will go right is. It uses the same bell housing and exhaust. But I bet its the modified and in that case your screwed.

if the 351 is an 88 then its a windsor. they no longer had the 351m in 88.

I have a 89 with a modified in it factory.

fuel injected also? modifieds were put in til mid 82 models til all used up. then replaced by 351w with 2 barrel carb. or 351HO with 4 barrel. then they went to fuel injection in 87.

I believe in 88 the C6 auto was more common - no OD range.
