seriously... leave in d and take o/d off, my car is plenty quick when i do that, i only use 1st when i wanna screw around and make my lmII's scream around a block =P, anywho, I've raced a minivan and lost.. lols a friend of mine took a turbo out of an eclipse and a few of his buddies installed and fabbed it up to his moms 05 sienna.. it's funny cause one time we rolled up to a traffic light and the guy in the next lane was driving a camaro, he revved his engine, then my friend let the bov go off, needless to say the camaro tried to take off, but after 15mph in 1st (tiptronic auto) the turbo kicked in and it was lights out=P

fun when you can rape some 2 seaters with a 7 seater family van=P

why manual shift at all just leave in d
Good question. When you leave it in drive, it's all good. Accept that when it automatically shifts into 2nd it shifts not at its maximum. The max rpm before hitting the redline is 5750 or 5800 rpm's.When shifting it manually at those rpm's (I like to believe that it's 5750rpm's)it makesthe car tires chirp &the car leapsfoward. If you do it right: you'll have a smile from ear to ear [sm=smiley4.gif]. Unlike me who did it WAY wrong..lol. I went into the redzone & totally forgot to shift.[sm=oopssign.gif]

I guarantee this...I will never do that again.

Lol sorry man I forgot to repost and say I was joking......
If it makes you feel any better, the guy from the civic probably thinks you just let off the gas and let him pass you. I myself do this alot since I dont like to race on the street. If im at a light and theres another car that wants to race, I just take off hard for like 3 seconds and show him my tail lights (if im faster) and then I just let off the gas and let him pass and I continue on my way cruising.

Man where did you learn to drive? A stock GT only makes power up 5500 rpms, after that the power starts to drop. For max power you want to shift at 5400 rpms. My wifes GT is an auto and I have the shift points set at 5250 rpms which makes it shift right at 5400. I did firm up the shifts and when it upshifts the tires break loose everytime. You have a computer controlled tranny and trust me the computer is smarter then you when it comes to knowing how and when to shift. Keep it in D then maybe you can beat a civic.

You better learn about the f*cking car you are driving you dumb **** before you try to correct me. Judging by your response I know way more about these cars and these engines then you do. I build these engines and race these cars all the time. I tune my own cars and do all my own work on my cars. Do some f*cking research on the powerband of 4.6L 2v engine.
