From what I can tell: Yes it will go across. Major revisions seem to be 2007-and-earlier got revised for 2008-and-later. I'd suggest getting the TCM with it to be safe.

I don't know of anyone doing this anywhere so take this advice at your own risk. Maybe consult your local ATRA-certified transmission shop for good measure.

Let us know how it goes.
