Default Ford transmission questions- someone school me!

Ok so I have not been happy with the stock small block c6 or the TCI c6 I have either. The stock c6 in currently is mated to an explorer 5.0 FYI. Long first gear and I can't run it around town or past 55mph or it sucks gas. I've been told an 4r70 and some sort of aode trans out of a late 80's crown Vic has a much better first gear and an electric overdrive that i manually turn on when approaching highway speeds. Any truth to this or suggestions?

Btw I will be getting rid of one if not both trannies if I can locate one of these trans options.
