P38 4.0 ZF4HP-22 in a 3.9 Range Rover Classic?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys as the title suggests can a P38 Auto gearbox from a 4.0 V8 fit on 3.9 V8 in a classic? 

I’m thinking yes as its the same box but no oil filler, what other differences are there? Or reasons it wont work out? 

I have one sat around & thinking I might aswell use it rather than source one for the classic.

Isn't an EH, with electronic control?

The P38 uses an electronically controlled version of the ZF. Without the ECU, you wont be able to control the valve block.

I do have the ecu, how much work is involved to fit the gearbox I wonder? Would it be a complete loom change?

The gearbox ECU will need to talk to the engine ECU I believe, which you most certainly don't have.... (at least fitted)

Could be easier to change the valve block for one from a non-EH box i.e. RRC / Disco 1. No electronics to worry about.
