C4 or C6 swap instead of the 93 o/d

Well my friend has had some bad luck with his 93 F150 overdrive trany ( its 2 wheel drive) he would like to change it out for a C4 or C6 which one would be the better choice. Also what would be involved in the swap?

thanks
bill

Gonna be tough to put a three speed in there. The PCM is programmed for the overdrive and its proper operation. Better off fixing the trans that's there....

about the only thing it would do is set a trans fault code, not affect engine operation.You always just grab the pcm out of a manual trans version then it wouldn't know or care about the tranny.
