Possible C6 to AOD Transmission Swap?

I have a 1992 F250 HD 4x4 with the 460, hooked up to the C6. I would like to swap out the C6. My dad suggested to swap it out for the E4OD, but when I read up on it, looks like it gets real expensive real quick. After a little more research, I came across the EOD transmission.

Questions:
Is it possible to do this swap?

And if so, would I need something like an adapter kit because of bolt pattern, or any other complications? Or is it a strait, bolt in swap?

Thanks, anything helps.
Jake

You would need a bell housing adapter. Theres 3 bell housings small block, big block and diesel. They didn't put an aod behind the 460 because its not strong enough for it.

I'm sorry, I meant AOD, not EOD. Thank you for the info, though.. Would you happen to know anything about the AOD-E? I read some stuff about that too, but didn't quite understand what they were saying.

The AODE was a computer controlled 4 speed auto that Ford used in some cars. The truck version was the 4R70W, however, as rrg said about the AOD, it was never produced with the big block bellhousing.

The AOD isn't an option for a big block truck, even if it would attach to the engine it would have to be builtup with aftermarket parts to handle the torque loads put on it by that motor and the heavy vehicle. The E4OD is the only automatic overdrive trans option for you but it requires wiring additions and a computer swap, a ZF 5-speed manual would give you OD without any wiring or computer changes.

I see... thank you all. So looks like that's out. I guess I'll go for the E4OD then.

That's going to be a complicated swap, especially if you don't like messing with wires. You will have to get a ecu from a 460/e4od combo and make up your own harness for the trans to the ecu. Or get a separate stand alone system at $1000+

ZF 5 speed would be easier. All you would need is the trans, clutch, master cylinder, pedal assembly, driveshafts and crossmembers.

I've read up on the ZF 5, but the thought of turning my truck into a stick shift is all bad for me... I mean I know that there's a lot of advantages and such, but I'd rather just keep it an automatic. So... E4OD. That's what I'm thinkin.
