VII used the standard 5x4.5 ford pattern, the VIII used a 5x4.25 pattern.  And if its got a 302 in it, It's a VII, as the VIII's used the 4.6 quad cam(have one on a stand at My shop).

It's a 90 v11. It is a 302 HO the AOD appears to be electronic od. Any idea what a t5 (needs rebuilt) 302 bell housing peddles brake buster new clutch pressure plate(new in box) is worth. I passed on the twin turbo kit less turbos.price now 1200?

Short answer; What someone will pay for it.Big smile

Long answer; You need to know what your selling before you can put a price on it.  Is the T5 a World-Class or regular box?  Is it a V-8 trans or one from the I-4?  Bellhousing stock, aftermarket?  And what car are the pedals for?

I think the '90 VII did have the AOD-E, which is a decent trans, but need the signals from the computer to operate correctly.  Better off with the standard AOD. I have one behind the 400 in My '79 Heritage(Custom bellhousing and 10"/3500 stall converter), and so far I haven't had any issues(As I'm knocking repeatedly on My wooden desk..LOL )
