In theory it seems like it would work, sr5matt needs to get in here.
I could blindly theorize all day about tcu's and whatnot. But it would be futile as I would be smoking my 2nd blunt in a row, and blunt or not, I have no idea what I'm talking about.

No It won't work because of the neutral switch unless you make a custom bracket.

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with RL's having OBDII's

obd and transmissions are mutually exclusive. He needs to worry about mounting/ TCU and sensors. Sorry Mondi, no effin clue!

The difference is in the trans housing itself it changes where the shifter goes. When the trans on my Rl i tried putting the legend trans. Everything its the same, same plugs, mount. and I don't think tcs is a problem. only problem i see its how the ecu makes the shifts. I did not ran the car that much because of the neutral switch problem.

so the OBDII ecu probably wont work with the legends OBDI tranny.
