    Work with the tranny you have and build from there. Unless you plan to get serious at the drag strip, then the auto would be my chioce.

    What tranny DO you have?

    since you have a auto get a good stall and then start with bolt ons, once you done most of them look at building up the rearend, luckily autos dont eat rearends like the M6 will

    Helps you launch at higher rpms resulting in a faster take off. Youre looking at 500 - 800 dollars for stall (torque converter) depending on which one you go with.
