BAD is keeping the peace
My dad has a Shelby Charger without an engine and transmission and I was wondering if I could swap in a 1999 2.4 with auto tranny in it. I know the 2.4 will swap in fairly easily, but how does the tranny fit in there? I know most of you will say put a 5 speed in it, but chances are this car will be a commuter and i can get the stratus cheap.

Believe it or not, replace the engine/trans with whatever comes with stock will be the cheapest way to get the Shelby Charger running, even if you can get the 2.4L with trans for free.

Otherwise, can you weld steel/aluminum? Have thousands of $$$? Have lots of time? Willing to deal with "unique" problems? Do ok in electronics?

If the answer is no to any of the above, forget it.

I'm not really looking for the cheapest way, I am just looking to build a decent car that commutes well and is a little different. I have plenty of time to do this project and have no problem working through all the issues, but I was just curious if the auto trans would go in without a ton of fabrication or I would have to pick up a different trans for the swap. Reguardless of the transmission I am planning on putting in a 2.4.

Hope it goes good but It will take some fab to get that 2.4L to fit in the charger. I would just go with an orginal engine because it cheap and easier in the long run!
