Whats the big difference between the 1989 Cougar LS and Xr7?
The XR7 is 8 cylinders the LS 6. 3.8engine.
It dependsprimarily on the engine in the Explorer, and the engine in the Cougar, and the years of each. If the Cougar is 1989-1997, equipped with a V8 (which would mean the tranny is an AOD - specifically, 4R70W) and the Explorer is a 5.0 between 1994 and 2001, it'll have the same transmission. Of course, if you're taking a transmission out of the Cougar and in to the Explorer, the gearset won't be heavy…
