The trans. you have on your 302 will fit the 300.

Any transmission that came off any Ford small block engine will bolt right up to your 300.

300-6, 302 and 351 are small blocks and all have the same bell housing bolt patern.

If your going E4OD, you will need an ECU that came off another that had the E4OD behind it. The transmission computer works with the engine computer on the E4OD trans.



The 300 is far better than the 302 in all aspects!

Much better low end power, more torque than the 302, abit less HP though.

300 = 160HP and 265ft. Torque @ ~2000RPM.

302 = 185HP and 200ft. Torque @ ~4000RPM. Can't remember the exact RPM numbers on that one.


Much more durable and you can abuse it all day long, and it's only gonna ask for more!

What does your dash gear selector say?

P R N D 2 1 = C6

P R N (D) 2 1 = E4OD (will have an OD button on the dash or steering column depending on year)

P R N (D) D 1 = AOD

You have the M5OD (or M5R2) what ever people wanna call it.

It's a Mazda 5 speed transmission. Good transmission for everyday driving, but nothing extreme.


That will go behind your 300.


Just be sure since you'll have access to the transmission, replace the 3 rubber plugs on it. They like to leak and it emptys out the fluid and they burn out.

That crap is emission related.

What year is your engine and truck?
