    Dan,
    There are many many times that I wish I had the MT. I got a good deal on my car though and did not want to wait around to find a comparable MT. The car is running great. The only gripe I have is the low end, off the line performance. It is much better with the SC but will never provide that pushrod V8 high torque off the line performance that I remember from my youth, especially with the AT. It really starts getting into boost at around 2500 RPM. I have experimented with different ways to launch with the AT and have found that I can power brake and get up to 2500 RPM and get a decent launch. However, if you let the rear wheels spin at all, even with traction control off, the ECU cuts the RPMs back to 2 grand or less. You then have to release the brake, roll forward a little then re-engage the brake or it will not let you get above 2000 RPM. If I really tromp down on the brake and get the revs up above 2500 RPM then the back end just cuts loose. It is pretty impressive but results in a really slow launch. This is the main frustration I have with the AT. Other than that, I love the performance. I am planning on switching to a smaller pulley to get somewhere above 8 PSI of boost at our altitude. This should also help with the low end as the boost will be higher across the rev range. It won't address the AT launch issues though. However, I don't really plan to drag race the car so it is not that big of an issue.

    The suspension and brakes are great. I am going back this Friday to get some minor adjustment to the alignment as I did not have time to address them last friday. I have a very slight pull to the right. The brakes wille throw the fillings out of your teeth if you really romp on them at speed. The Drop with the Tein SS-Ps is just what I was looking for. Although it is not slammed, I still have to be careful pulling in and out of the driveway or I will scrub a little.

    Dave
