z28 automatic or stickshift
okai i gotta automatic z28...i jus wanna to knw how much of diffrent dose it make when it comes down to performance between automatic and stickshift???? Is there certain mods that u cant do wid automatic.....

nope, asides from the skip shift elimination.
As for performance, well that's a matter of opinion, you will always dyno higher with a stick, but will have better control at the track with an auto, and with some tweaks an auto can out do a stick.

IMO auto with stall, optmized shift points and pressures is the way to go

i've had two A4s and now I have an M6... and the main difference for me was the "fun" factor... the M6 wins there. However, if I'm sitting at a stop light and some dude next to me wants to make things interesting, I would love to have my 99 SS A4 back. Just easier to launch IMO.. especially with a stall. plus, its a pain in the ass to text while driving a six speed lol.

m6 better from roll (where you will see most of your street races) no comparison between the two on a road course/twisties. a4 better down the quarter mile track but someone who can drive their NA 6 speed can run some nice times too.

im referring to the downshift period. . . . .if you and i had same car and we raced from roll you had auto and i had stick. . . . . . . . . .i'd get a jump on ya- - - -rev match and dump is immediate. flooring and hoping for the best is not, also i know exactly what gear to crack for a downshift at any speed. . . . .im sure you know what yours shifts at but will it always downshift to the best gear at all speeds? for instance, lets say you're goin 35 and first would be best gear to crack but it cracks 2nd instead. . . .i really dunno much about modified autos and what you can do with 'em, im basing the majority of this on cars ive driven.

you would be amazed how "dialed in" you can get the newer computer controled autos though......by the way, it took me personally about two months of tests and fine tuning to get mine just where I wanted it
