Two things
1) Your car is so sick!
2) Love the upgrades.

I have Shorty headers (Chrome) Thinking about 3:55 gears and driveshaft.


Question for you. When you purchased MPT tune did they account for the gears and headers ? Is it the same tune everyone gets?

I dont think they do anything for the headers but they will defiantly change it for the gears.

ok im going to say something here because I really really want you to like your car.

do your absolute best to just acknowledge your car as a super fun street and strip car. do whatever it takes to convince yourself of that.

that does not mean you shouldn't hit the road course. its what I prefer to do most. its also where the lions share of my track time has been spent over the last 2 years.

the reason im mentioning this here, is because I don't want to see you go though what ive seen a few friends go through with auto's. that being, you jumping down a black hole of chassis work trying to make that auto squirt out of corners, and go into corners, or carry speed through turns, the way only a manual car can.

also you really need to acknowledge a dual clutch transmission car is not equal to (in any way shape or form) and automatic on track.

again, I realize this sounds harsh. but ive had 2 friends now dump 6-7 k into their cars, only to sell them, go upside down on both the car and mods only to start all over again just to get a manual (in many cases, tranny swaps are cost prohibitive for most.

I just want you to love that car man. so take my advice under consideration. that's all I ask. I think you'll continue to love that car 2 years down the road if you do.

How is a transmission swap more expensive than getting a new car? In point of fact, performing a transmission swap is a great opportunity to get a better-than-OEM transmission and/or clutch at the same time, and learn a lot more about the car tin the process.

I've found that turning off hill-assist really wakes up an automatic car, because the shifts happen later (both up and down shifts) and it locks out 6th gear. The car is MUCH more responsive. The OP actually has it better because he has the select shift feature in his car, which my 2012 lacks.

The only real problem with his auto trans on a road course will be the lazy speed of shifting up/down. Because you never really know when the transmission is going to finish shifting, you have to approach corners with a bit more trepidation and brake a little earlier/longer. The manual trans definitely wins in this regard (against a select-shift auto).

I think any car (regardless of its transmission) on a road course is leaps and bounds more fun than racing at a drag strip, although the drag strip favors autos, and road courses favor manuals. If I didn't already have other crazy ideas, I'd be planning a transmission swap myself (although my crazy ideas already include a transmission swap, but not JUST a transmission swap).
