my silver 2006 gt kicks ass but its an automatic...i wanted to try the 5 speed auto since motor trend says its as fast as a manual...any punchers out there experiment yet on which gear is the launch gear?
I heard that there are problems with the Manuals Transmisions.
i had a 2000 and 2003 with the same manual trans but i had no problems with it...
But I wonder whyyyy the 2005s and 2006s are having problems?
I am happy with my 2006 stang gt with Automatic...But when you are in Drive and everything off it still takes about 2 seconds before the trans really kicks in.Unless i should start in first and then second and so on????:dunce: ...JohnnyT
I'm no expert but it sounds like what you are talking about is throttle lag:sosad:
Its been very irritating for me, and I can't wait to put in CAI and tune and get rid of it - i hope. My neighbor drove it and says there is no, or maybe .5 sec throttle delay. I disagree i think its 1-2 secs delay from when i slam the gas, and they throttle really opens up.
I have a 2005 V6 auto and it had the same lag in 1st gear. Really annoying when you want to be quick off the line without brake-torque launching. I got the Superchips microtuner (http://www.superchips.com/product.phtml?p=12&mmk=581&msg=+) and tuned it so the problem is gone now. It raised the rev limiter and speed limiter too. It works on the V8 as well.
