Guys— looking at a new 17 GT with an auto. My 66 Coupe was an auto, my 7 Mustangs thereafter were all sticks. Note- this car will Never touch a track. It won't have PP. It will have a real spare tire and cd player. In short an around town car and highway cruiser (not a back road corner carver). Ive driven earlier (05,06 autos but i thought those had 2.73 or 3.33. Anyway I hated the auto with the 2.73?? Seemed to bog down about 28-35 mph in and around town traffic while the optional ratio (3.33?) seemed to keep the rpms high enough to aviod this. How is the new set up (up to 17my) with the 3.15 or 3.55. Again i dont give a shit about drag racing, just hate being in sitting, creeping traffic and have the damn thing bog or go nuts while going up small hills and constantly hunting and pecking gears. Anyone driven both in a 15-17 MY GT. I should note I found the perfect option/color car save for it having 3:15s instead of the 3:55s. Short test drives still leaving me with questions.::cheers: I will note the car will be involved in several cross country caravans over the next few yrs. Warranty will stay in place thus NO interest in a post sale rear gear change, lund tune etc.
