Properly drive a manual. Push in clutch. Shift gear. Let out clutch. You manual guys make it sound wayyyyyy more difficult than it is.In what aspect is it a "much better car"? Sure the autos will always be faster in a straight line, and if you have to DD it in rush hour traffic the auto is better. From a driving enjoyment perspective, from an engagement and involvement perspective a manual will always be King. Of course anyone who can't properly drive a manual will tell you otherwise. You may find that the OEM clutch will need to be upgraded to handle all of the torque from the Whipple.
OP If your digging your car now. You’ll love it twice as much on boost.
