Second is ... if your hp goals are 400+ why would you switch to manual? The auto will handle the power for less $ and be faster
I am not knocking the manual, i have a 6sp in my new car, but on the tib when you go over 300whp auto>manual by a lot
1.) I like a challenge, and I always wanted to have a manual 5 speed Tiburon for my Turbo setup (7 years with my automatic boosted, time for a change). Also I changed from my Solstice to a 2011 2SS Camaro 6 speed; wanted a new everyday driver. Need to upgrade my signature.
2.) The automatic does not handle power for less because of the extensive upgrades between the torque converter change, to tranny valve body pump, and stronger clutch packs, to dual coolers... I have done it all since 2003 and spent a lot of $$$ experimenting and proving theories right and wrong to myself.
