    dude no one in last 30 years has made an 11 to one or greater compression engine except last 5 years..if that,, lets argue

    Who cares if you are a couple tenths slower in a manual than an auto. Either manual or auto is faster than 90% of cars on the road. The other 10% will beat a manual OR an auto.

    You know what's better in a manual car? The sound of the exhaust. Nothing like a slow wind to another gear. Try that in an auto and it shifts gears and completely ruins it. This is a general statement. I realize you can do this with paddle shifters.

    Nor did anyone set the number 11 as the definition of "high" compression. Average compression ratios have been steadily rising. The Mustangs compression ratio is nothing special. You talk about compression as if going from 10-1 to 11-1 is just like strapping on a turbo, it's not. You talk about increasing compression as if it's a huge power increase, and it's not.

    And the real way you make more N/A power is through increased RPMs.

    I like how you made a statement. Then voided your own statement at the end.

    I didn't though. Not all cars have paddle shifters. Plus, nobody uses the paddle shifters on these cars. The delay is insane.

    Static compression on the coyote is kind of a moot point. The reason we can get back to higher static compression is fuel advancements besides octane, and how the actual cylinder pressure can be modified via the cam fuel and spark timing. Just like the 18+ higher static compression, but still loves boost is controlling the actual running cylinder pressure with cam, fuel, and spark timings. And I agree with whoever said earlier all things unchanged a point or 2 static compression isn't going to make a huge real world difference.

    And for Nova I'm 750+rwhp on bone stock suspension and brakes! 4 wheel disc brakes don't leave a whole lot of room for improvement for my uses, and I don't have any wheel hop or other issues warranting suspension yet.

    This I agree with. My wife's auto is extremely fast, and the A10 is quite amazing. But, I find enjoy driving my little '06 GT with the 5 speed more.

    At very light throttle input, yes there is a delay. But at a decent throttle input all the way to wide open throttle the response is almost immediate after pressing the paddle to upshift. Click shift click shift, very quick response to the paddles and quick shifts by the transmission.

    I use the paddles nearly every day.

    Those that can do. Those that can't don't


    Manual transmissions are foreplay to a performance vehicle.

    I have a high compression race engine in an early Mustang. The 112 racing fuel is $10/ gallon. The rear of the hood is up to release heat.Seb2009z.jpg
