No disagreement there. Having to ride the brake pedal in an auto in stop n go sucks just as bad. Main annoyance is the traffic itself.
BINGOWhile it's no Miata neither is the 722.4 auto a Ferrari DCT. Even an old rubbery 5spd is better than a shitty old vac/hydro controlled auto in any situation other than stop-go traffic. A guy who owns an e39 M5 rowed through the gears in my car and asked how I got it to feel so tight and direct. It's because I rebuilt the shifter and replaced all the worn rubber bushings with delrin.
M102, m103, m104, m111, om601, om602, om603, om604, om605, om606 all share the same bell housing bolt pattern. I have an early 90s m102 5spd behind my om603 with a dual mass flywheel.now iirc are the bellhousing pattern for m10x and om60x are the same are they not?
This is an odd take in a message board about 30 y/o cars. And personally, I'd love to have a self-driving EV, but I that's beside the point.You manual transmission guys are living in the past, along with those lamenting the abolition of leaded gasoline and the lack of choice in bias ply tires.
The sun has long set on World War 2 technology, and the manual trans has about as much of a future as a shoeshine stand at the airport.
A few examples of car models that used to be referred to as the gold standard for manual transmissions, but now only come with a automated box: The new C8 Vette, Acura/Honda NSX, Porsche 911, Ferrari, Lamborghini, AMG, Aston Martin, etc, etc, etc.
Yeah, I dunno. Maybe. When I hear 1000hp+ I think drag racing where most people use built autos for speed and consistency. As LCG mentioned you'll need to address the rest of the drivetrain.Spearheading as in leading? Surely someone has aimed this high with a manual before?
