I plan on seeing if mine will go 16:1 or leaner at cruise, the old 390 2V engines in the LTDs would cruise at 19:1 or leaner (they would peg an AFR meter on the lean side). At least I don't have to worry about Cats on mine.
So will the AEM not have the ability to control an E4OD?

Not that I could determine. Everything I found required another stand alone transmission controller. That gets expensive fast. One of the issues I found is the E4OD is different electronically than the AODE or 4R70W. As a result, the pouplar ECMS (A9L and similar) will not operate it. Only the truck computers, 5.0L or 5.8L with E4OD have the circuits for this. I am going to be using a WAY1 box which uses the VEX1 strategy. It is a 5.0L Bronco unit.

Yes it does. You would just have to use the 30-1401 unit instead of the 30-1400 like I did. The only difference between the two is that the 1400 is setup for a standard transmission while the 1401 is setup for auto transmission controls. Like I've said before, this is a STANDALONE unit, it can do ANYTHING you want it to!

Cruise at 19:1...? I've never owned a 390 so I don't know but that sounds a bit lean to me....

Jonbar, this was a 68 or 69 LTD with the 390 2V engine at a friend's shop just up the road from mine. He is a Chevy guy, and was showing me how efficient Ford's intake design was. He and I had staion wagons at the time for our families and were comparing notes. His was a Pontiac LeMans into which he had istalled a 327 250hp and Powerglide, 3:08 gear rear end and dual exhausts, mine was a 1970 1/2 Falcon with a 302 that I had installed 1965 289 4V heads and intake on, 351W exhaust manifolds and dual exhausts 3:00 gear. Around town I could kill him on fuel economy, but highway, they were real close due to his Quadrajet vs. my Holley. I finally got up to his level when I put a 1974 California 460 Carter Thermoquad on the 302. I know you can't do that level of lean mixture with EGR or catalyst as it just won't work. The catalyst needs that narrow range the O2 sensor wirks in.

I see. That's interesting.

My F-350 was stolen this last December and I replaced it with a 2012 F-150. The entire SEFI kit is for sale. It includes the complete wiring harness that I made, MAP sensor and the programmable AEM 30-1400 ECU. Let me know if you're interested. Quote me a price and we'll talk.

Nope. Never found it. I'm sure it's running drugs on the border. I replaced it with a 2012 F-150...don't regret it at all

So, if the truck was stolen, why was the AEM not stolen along with it?

Funny you ask...someone on a different forum asked the exact same question.

About 6 months before it was stolen I decided to sell it, and since I was going to sell it, I converted it back to stock. That's why I still have the AEM with all the wiring and sensor.

I have a 1993 Super Duty with an E4OD, the 7.3 engine is the old IDI type, the truck uses a computer for the trans, perhaps you could make one of these work for you?

I have a friend, who is also on here, who has been trying for a couple of years to get an IDI trans controller to work with a gasoline engine. He has had all kinds of problems starting with the rpm signal. He finally threw in the towel and ordered a Baumann Optishift.

I paid $750 for the AEM 30-1400 ECU, (still has my dyno tune programmed on it) $50 for the wiring harness from the junk yard, and had a Honda map sensor lying around (that you could have). I kept the instructions in the glove box but obviously they got stolen with the pickup so unfortunately I no longer have them but I could walk you through the install from what I remember. Make me a REASONABLE offer and I'd consider selling.
