Motor and Transmission transfer from 2022-2019

I just want to know if I took a motor and transmission from a 2022 Charger Hellcat donor car and put it in my 2019 Charger Hellcat would I be able to use the 2022 transmission or would I have to buy a 2019 Transmission ‼ The reason I ask is because I was able to get a donor (2022) car to rebuild my recked Hellcat (2019) but the shop that's doing the work wants to sell my donor car transmission (2020) which is practically brand new and are saying I will need to purchase another (2019) reason for this is that there saying it want match my pcm, something about a different vin associated with the chip in the trans, the plug from the harnesses may be different even though I'm using the harnesses from the 2022 on my 19‼
Not sure how true this is but I really think there just trying to steal my donor transmission and make me buy a new one for no reason ‼ Please advise ‼

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place please move to correct area if so...

The transmission doesn’t care. My transmission is from a 2016 charger, I have a 2015 challenger. It’ll work as long as they didn’t change any of the electrical circuits. Why not use your old pcm? It’s the same engine and transmission.
Just get the engine harness for your car. It’s like $500. Then it for sure will work, if you don’t want to put the leg work in to look through wiring diagrams and pin outs. Can look up the part number for the wiring harness and see if it “fits” your car. And who are these “people” telling you this? You won’t be able to use that PCM, you will have to send it out to have it flashed with the OS, year and vin of your car. How did your PCM get damaged? Are you the guy that made a post a while ago and everyone told you not to attempt to save the car? Lol
Again, who is telling you this? Also, there’s software out there that should let you write the vin to the tcm in the transmission, but I doesn’t matter
Body shops don’t know crap. They hire companies to come in and do any wiring/flashing/relearns of sensors etc. so unless the company they hire to drive in and do that stuff for them is telling them that, they’re bullshitting you
Look up part numbers online for wiring harnesses etc and see if it says “fits your vehicle”
Why would you hire a body shop to do anything mechanical??!! You’re nuts dude
What? That price is way off. New transmission is about $5000 if you give them your core.
Hit up Hemi Tuner if you’re in NY, see what he has to say
And don’t ever go to the dealership dude do everything online you’re crazy trying to pay full price for parts
People over complicate these cars. They probably don’t have a micro pod/Witech subscription to do it because it costs a lot. There’s aftermarket ways to do this as well. Reach out to Hemi Tuner.
Price must have went up cause I was @the dealership on Thursday and shop price is 7500, with the core custom price is 8,500 from the dealer!
No, the dealership rips you off and charges full price. Order from any Mopar online parts store. Go look, you’ll see how much cheaper it is.
The only reason I went to the dealership was find out what the price of the transmission was and worst case if I couldn't find one online or had the issue of compatibility I would have had no choice !
Google, my friend lol.
