So unless you have first hand experience here with THESE cars I would suggest you keep quiet. I do have personal experience here and know FIRST hand the 2011 auto cars do not benefit from a gear change to 3.73's or 4.10's. My 2011 ran low 11's N/A on 3.15's tuned by me.

Yes you're definitely missing something here, the aggressive gearing in the 6R80. Read some of the others comments here as well. They agree with me.
Didn't know I was dealing with someone "all knowing" and that this wasn't America anymore where people can't have an opinion. Let me be the first to say MY BAD... and I AM SORRY I inserted an opinion and former experience in gear swaps.

I feel this thread has escalated more than it should have though and has strayed off topic of helping a fellow form member and is now rather just about arguing and trying to be right...

I will be the first to admit I know more about manual's then autos. As I have owned many Mustangs and majority being manual as nothing against autos, but I don't feel as in control or as one with the car as when driving a auto.

Either way I am leaving the thread as there is nothing to be gained here arguing... Sorry I seemed to offend/piss you off...
