    Unhappy 91 shadow 5M, what trans?

    Going to look at a 91 shadow 2.5 Turbo 5 speed. What trans should be in the car?

    I'd expect a 523. I believe only the intercooled cars got the 568.

    Can't polish a turd? Sure you can! Just don't reuse the rag afterwards, dummy!

    I've heard, but never known it confirmed that some or perhaps all of the hi torque option cars received the 568. Any non ICed turbo car I've ever found in the yard was a 523 or 520. The 91 Daytona I pulled a trans from years ago was a 3.50FD 523.

    There is a plate on top of the transmsision. Look and find out. Car is 28 years old, anything can be swapped into it.

    Nope. High torque 2.5 turbo got A568. I got one of those A568 here.
    Tailgate at your own risk.

    the F-D gear alone would give you a "high torque option" just by installing the trans

    I'm not sure that Shadows ever got the high torque option.

    I didn't know the Shadow was available with the High Torque option; I thought it was only Daytonas and LeBarons.
