How much do you like messing with cars? You could always convert the CX to a manual! I'm sure you can hit 40 with that car, either way.

Thanks for the welcome.

I did read the driving tips section and it had some very good information.

I love to work on cars, I have since I was a kid. I have owned everything from big trucks to luxury cars. I have never owned a stock car. My WS6 puts about 420 hp to the Wheels and gets 22mpg. My supra really depends on what I have the boost set at. But it can get really good gas mileage for the power it makes.

I thought about converting the car to a manual. I really haven’t seen the reason to yet. I understand the fact that automatics have approximately 20% of drive train loss compared to 16 %( approximately). I could not find a car for my price range that was a manual.
