Going to be helping brother in law build a wheeling rig. Using a Bronco II as a base vehicle. He decided he wanted to go with a 302 and an automatic. Currently we are on the hunt for a cheap 96 Explorer for a donor. Plan is to use the engine, computer and minimum amount of the wiring to make engine run. I already have a c5/c4 rebuilt for it. Here is the question- will the engine still function properly without the computer being able to communicate with the explorer 4R70w. Probably just show a fault if I plug in a code reader to OBD2 plug, but engine should function still, I am thinking. Am I right or wrong??
