99 mustang with 408 windsor, which trans to install?

hey guys im new to the forms and ive surfed a few of them, i have to say u guys seem to know ur stuff..

before i ask my qustion ill let u know what im buliding. i have a 99 mustang coupe with a 351w bord and stroked to a 408 with 510 hp about the same tq with a carbed setup. no tranny, 7.5 diif with 410 ford racing gears and a posi.
i know the rear end not the best buts it's a buget bulid till i figure everything out.

which brings me here.

i have the motor in the car and i must say its a perfect fit.

my qustion:

im about to start with the tranny and i have a few dreams but not enough cash. what im trying to do is keep the oem speedo and abs. ive read a few fourms on this site with alot of good info but not what i need to know. im looking at a 95 mustang gt auto tranny aode and im woudering if this set up will work for what i want to do. in other words plug and play?

i also have a aod non e out of a 89 crown vic cable driven speedo. im wondering if theres a way to hook that up to an eletric speedo vss?

i would like to save the $300 on the aode and use the aod.

i know theres alot of other trannys i shoud use or could use but like i said budget bulid. i do plan to upgrade but i rather make a small mistake then a real expesive mistake.

I would say the AOD with a manual valve body kit makes the most sense.JMO
