86 Ford F150 302 rclb 2wd

Just picked up a new project truck, I've been jumping from brand to brand lately and the all seem to of had problems.... So I went back to a ford. It's the 86 f150 reg cab long box 302efi auto XL. All the fluid needs to be changed on it the air filter has the most oil and crap build up I've ever seen on a filter, but she fires up in under a second and runs like a champ. Now, she seems to bog down everytime I need to start from a stop light so I have to start slow and work my way up to speed. I put the truck down into first and it went away when I started. So its my transmission.... but would a simple trans filter and fluid eliminate this? Also does anyone have any specs on these trucks transmission wise and rearend wise? Can't seem to find a tag with all this info on it. Thanks and glad to be back on the forums.

If the tranny is a 3-Speed it'll be a C-6. If it's 4-Speed it'll be an AOD.
The rearend could be a Ford 9" (easy to tell if there is no rear cover) or it will be a 8.8" which I think Sterling made (It'll have cover and is a c-clip rear like chev's). 3.50 to 1 is a common gear ratio in the 9". 8.8" could have 3.54 to 1.

actually the 8.8 would be 3.55 to 1 not 3.54

At the time of posting the first post it was too dark to see under the truck and my wife hoarded all my flash lights. It is a 3 speed so a C6 and the rear end has a bolt cover so it's the 8.8. I heard somewhere either the C4 or C6 was a bullet proof trans, My plan was to throw a slap shift in it but what performance parts are recommended for the trans with a mildly built 302?

I used a B & M ZGate floor shifter when I had the C6 in mine. B & M also makes some really good shift kits for the C6
