Depends on the swap you are looking to do. Nearly all of the transmissions that were standard in shadow will fit perfectly in the mounts (you may have to re-center the engine, tweak here and there).

The Shadow Transmissions were:
A520, A555, A523, A568?(on a lot of 2.2 2.5 turbo cars)


Some folks over @ turbododge have had success with some of the more modern mopar transmissions (out of Neons, and the Stratus) it depends on how much fabrication work you are willing to do for mounting.

I'd recommend the A568. It's a tough son of a gun that you can find relatively easily and the mounts should line up alright. Please do a mockup depending on what kind of engine you're putting in. You can find a lot of folks on turbododge and cardomain who have managed to put a 2.4DOHC in their shadows (of varying years) and they tend to use the A568.

PLEASE use new mounts, even a stock 2.2 tbi can quite a bit of kick to it if it's not properly restrained.

Hope that helps!

What parts have to be changed I have 2007 dodge charger 2.7L/4speed Tran's/engine and Tran's swapp from a 2004 Magnum 3.5L/5speed Tran's

They won't be compatible. No matter what you swap out. engines are different and transmissions are different. PCM's wont let them work together.

Is a 2000 5.9 liter engine Dodge Durango transmission compatible with 1997 5.2 liter engine dodge 1500 pickup

Absolutely not. Engines have to be the same type to start. Transmission have to match also. I believe yours would start at 99 or 2000 and go up to 2003. Junk yard will tell you. Dodge did a swap up in 99. Some 99 transmissions would work in 2000's, but a lot of them didn't.

Is a 046-1 and 046-2 46re transmission compatible in a 96 dodge ram extended cab truck, the 046-2 came out of a 94 dodge single cab

As far as doing a swap it's not compatible do to the casting of the transmission case. The '96 has the VSS and OSS holes in the tail housing, and the '94 has a yellow 2-pin connector. However the internals of the transmissions are the same.
