Are you planning on dumping the clutch and launching hard? if so, I would upgrade because even a stock car will wear parts out quick like that.

As for the ratings, it has to be at least that of the automatic. Probably more because the Auto puts off much more heat and would wear faster then a manual.

but it depends on your driving style and if you shift good, if your grinding and slamming - all guesses go out the window because that's more of a driver inflicted injury, then a pure power issue.
