Automatics are still nic for crusing, but it great to gear jam every now and then

On the automics note, anyway itcould be paddle shifted??

The clutch pedal and clutch/flywheel assembly would be refined enough to be used in an everyday driver.

The 6T70 is rated for 462 ft/lbs versus 400 ft/lbs for the 4T65.

I will be evaluating the power handling of the F40.

6 speed auto would have a manual-shift control

How about a manual valvebody/console shifter on a 6T75? would that be do-able? Probably a lil overkill and not practical for daily driver......?

Would a manual box require using the G6 brake and clutch pedal assembly?


F40
Type: transverse front wheel drive, six-speed manual transaxle.

Engine Range: 3.9L
Max Gearbox Torque: 295 lb.-ft.

Weight: 124 lbs.

Applications: Pontiac G6

Someone good? I dunno.

The G6 with the 6T70 already has shift paddles, so I'd imagine a manual override setup wouldn't be hard to mess with.

As far as I know, the F40 would need the G6 clutch pedal assembly, though perhaps a more common assembly could be used. I'm not sure how much the master cylinder matters. Might be able to use a Cavalier or S10 master cylinder for all I know.

Manny is the way to go, I feel more in control with a stick, plus its fun-er

but at the same time...6-Speed Auto with the manual shift...hmm
nah its not the same as a stick, but a great idea
