1999 Auto vs. Manual

How much power/accelerlation and 0-60 time do you lose when you lose when you go with an automatic over a manual? Lets just assume all shifts were perfect in the Manual.

you lose like 10hp and i think it depends on driver how much time you loose. if you put a higher stall, and j-mod in ur 4r70w you will take the 5 speeds all day


cams, and all basic bolt ons, arizen seats, cowl hood, and now my buckets got a hole in it (meaning im broke) but when i fix it ill have gears and some trany work

stock for stock, the manual would own it. but yes, if you did get a built automatic, 5-speeds would get owned. also, manual is more fun, if you're looking to use it as a DD

you r right its like 10-20hp difference depending on stall and % of clutches slipping... but don't forget that the 5spd is also allot lighter n if you add an aluminum driveshaft, stage2 clutch, short throw shifter and a good person shifting it would be really close... and the auto can never feel like the standard in the FUN FACTOR when playing on the streets or in other types of racing, like auto-x or drifting......
