Auto's generally do better on the drag strip than manuals.

Each to their own tho.

If you can drive stick then between the stock boxes the manuals faster every time.

You don't need a tricked up auto. Although that certainly helps.

All you need is a higher stall converter. You can get away with having your original converter modified to increase your stall speed.

Or you cold lower the dif ratio and get results that are not far off a high stall.
