Hello, my name is***** you for allowing me to assist you today.
it should not be the port or the stbd engine that is the shadow. It should be the center engine. When both control handles are in one gear, fwd or reverse, the center engine would kick in. The two outside engines are the ones that control this. If your boat is not set up this way, you will need to take it to a dealer and have them program the controls correctly. This takes dealer level software and is not something that can be done elsewhere.
