All trannies were 65'* 97+ guys!!
yeah you can
the relative torque ratings of the fwd and rwd are just on different scales - i've posted it before, and i don't remember the exact numbers, but i believe the 60 in a FWD is about a 40 in the RWD trannies... (ie, the 5L40 can handle about as much as a 4l60 can)
in any event, the barrel of the two is similar. I'm not sure just how similar, but they are similar. different components will be put in different trannies that look on the outside to be completely the same... which is all i was tryin to say. now, if you have two 04KZD'* for example (again, using a RWD example) they *should* (but not always) be exactally the same on the inside, but if you have an 04SHD or even a 03KZD, they could have different components...
'tis all i'm sayin...
