over the last year, it has been reported by many - including terry at BMS -
that the auto tranny is approx 2 tenths of a second faster (2 car lengths) in the 1/4 mile than the manual.
most if not all of the fastest N54 1/4 track times are with autos.
...also note that the rear differential in the automatic has a 342 final ratio and the auto has something like a 315 final ratio:
hence: many people swapping out for aftermarket LSDs are opting for the automatic final differentila ratio.
sorry to disappoint, but nothing but the facts...
