i checked with sonnax, the adaptor is for newer 5 pin style tranny to be used in, older 3 pin style dodge truck it wont work for older tranny to be put in newer truck, which is what my plan was.

the adaptor will work for newer transmission to older truck, not vice versa according to sonnax which is the company that sells them.here is there toll free #1 800 843 2600.
