4r70w I believe is what factory put behind those 4.6s.
The trans will not fit if it is a t5. A trans that bolts up to it is a 4r70 a t45 or the t3567 or something like that. The t5 bolts to Windsor styler motor like a 3.8v6 or a 260-302
Edit: forgot the orginal quesion. the only issue with the 4r70 would be that its electronically shifting. You would need a tcm to control it I believe.
