I can see why you sold the manual, obviously defective or maybe you just couldnt shift?
Sorry couldnt resist, this isnt my auto is faster than your manual thread.
I know what this threads about but this was more of a response to 46Tbird and yes I can shift, probably better than most! I've been running cars and bikes for 20 years. This is actually my first auto or second if you count the RAV4 which is my wife's primary car.
I would love to run against any 3.73 manual above 60 to prove my point. (In a safe area of course)
Watchdogg you should make a vid from 80-150 on a flat surface like mine and we'll compare
or you can meet me for some friendly runs.
Nothing defective with my manual. I test drove a bunch of manual 5.0's and they all felt the same.
When I had 3.73's in my manual 1st was plenty usable and was the biggest difference I noticed compare to the 3.31's.
