the SOHC would make waste to an A4LD in short order. you would be better off to get a 5R55E, computer and wiring harness along with the SOHC.

lol, yea, don't do it. The 4R44E-5R55E are in the same family as the A4LD, but I wouldn't want an actual A4LD unless it was completely rebuilt.

If you can get the trans and computer from the SOHC truck, then I don't see why you can't do it, but that'll cost you some money.
