    Excatly.

    Imagine a torque converter...only it locks at a higher rpm allowing the car to have better, more consistent launches

    I have always liked automatic in my cars, however manuel when you have another car to drive gives much more of a sports car feel. Not to mention it takes far more skill.

    in addition letting you stall the engine higher most after market converter are smaller (factory being 12", most after markets around 9" or 10"). this reduces the weight (rotating mass) so it will actually free up a little power too (like a billet flywheel in a manual)
