And don't use the converter from the junk trans, there maybe metal filing in it from the old trans. I should of asked what is not working on the old trans, if it is just not shifting right it may not be the trans at all, could be wiring or computer or speed sensors.
if your tach or speedometer are not working then is not a transmission problem, that would be speed sensors or electrical. then get it scanned before you pull it out. it may not have to come out. if it is electrical replacing the trans is not going to fix it.
I think you're incorrect on this, the 45RFE was only ever used on the 4.7/5.7 and the 46RE on the 3.9/5.9. AFAIK even the bell housings have different bolt patterns. I know for sure their converters are not interchangable.
