Well I found a guy on craigslist that had a 98 explorer eddie bauer edition. I finally picked up the EATC, blower speed controller, blend door actuator harness, even picked up a message center w/ harness. Since I got the Message Center I went ahead and got the windshield washer/ coolant reservoir w/ the sensor. Got it all for 40 bucks not too shabby. The weirdest thing is that the EATC has a bright ass green plastic case. I couldn't get the blend door actuator out because it got too dark. Probably go back later and get that and the oil temp/level sensor.

So looks like I will be doing the EATC this break, might as well get a new heater core while I'm doing all this (I've tried backflushing the hell out of it, but it still not producing as much heat as I want).

Also I will be doing all the research I can with installing the Message Center, checking the fuel flow rate pin on the PCM, deciding where to put the oil temp/level sensor, figuring out how to override the fuel tank capacity . (there are settings for either 20.8 or 18.4, and my tank is a 16.5, which screws up the miles til empty reading)
