One transmission is an OBD1 and the other is and OBD 2. Completely different operating systems, they won' interchange without a lot of computer system work.


Would replacing trans module take care of a good chunk, or jst find another 94 transmission cause im having to also replace torque converter 94 shaft is bigger than the 98, and different solenoid connection.


You would be better off finding another 94 tranny, the complexity of trying to make a OBD1 system drive an OBD 2 control module is just too much.
