New here with a PCM question.

Ive posted this question on other site's and they are more concerned with trying to decide if my 95 computer is fried or not rather than my question.

I have a 95 7.3 power-stroke auto tranny XLT if that makes a difference. it has the computer F5TF-12A650-BJF no one seems to have this computer anywere no part's house's not even the ford dealership say they can get it. While doing online searches for that make computer i ran across a thread that said you could swap the 95 computer with a 97 computer with a 97 with auto and STD EMIS or (FED) guess that is the non California version? so i was looking those up and seems there are 2 of them. F7TF-12A650-TA or F7TF-12A650-TB is this true? will it just be a plug and play swap? I know in that thread it said it was good for a few extra ponies im not really worried about that but gaining a little power never hurt anyone, my biggest concern is trying to get my truck back on the road and figure if i can broaden my search I have a better chance of finding one.

also if this is true does that mean i could use one from a 96 with a auto? part number's

F6TF-12A650-AYC
F6TF-12A650-AYE
F6TF-12A650-AYF
F6TF-12A650-AYG

If so are they also good for that small pony gain that the 97 was mentioned to giving?

Would i be able to use any computer for a 95 7.3 with auto?

Sorry for all the question's just fairly new to the diesel seen and reallly need/want my truck back on the road.

Yes, you should be able to use any of the DPC-202 PCMs for an automatic tranny. See if RockAuto has one in stock (for yours it would be an EM1408 part number). Cheers!

Any PCM for obs psd auto will work for you aside from the Cali 97 model, and they had late 96 Cali models too iirc that also had split shots, good luck

yea dealership says they cant get it, everyone says it is a R&R item. but that takes 2-3 weeks and i really need the truck, im halfway tempted to buy a used one just to get it up and running then have this one sent off later to see if it can be rebuilt so i will have a spare.

Didn't the PCM pin-out change from 95 to 96 though?
