My 92 Has the 3 speed.Curious what took place to have the OD? Is it the same trans with a different tail housing? Also when did Ford start using lockup torque converters in their trucks? Thanks!

In 1989 Ford starting using the E4OD (four speed) automatic transmission. It was said to "address some of the weakness in the C6" - but the E4OD has its issues too. Here's a good article on it: http://www.trucktrend.com/how-to/transmission-drivetrain/0703dp-maximizer-e4od-towing-transmission/
The E4OD is an electronically governed transmission (the C6 is hydraulically governed).

You can install an E4OD in place of a C6 using an aftermarket controller (like the MSD 2760). If you were going to go through the trouble of swapping, I would start with a performance built tranny. There is also a "bolt-on" Overdrive unit for a C6, if you have the room. See Gear Vendors website http://www.gearvendors.com/index.html
