I have owned both manuals and automatics over the years. I love my current 6 speed SS. It is just a different driving experience with it. I drove it over 500 miles to Orange Beach Alabama recently, including two major bumper to bumper traffic jams in Knoxville and Chattanooga Tenn, and had no regrets. Manuals keep you more engaged and aware and entertained.

I would want it not only to shift hard at WOT but also shift firmer at part throttle also. Is this possible also with a tune. I want to FEEL every gear shift firm but not harsh at part throttle. Would a tuner that does engines be able to do this tuning or only a transmission specialist?

Is this done with min spark and vtt like you mentioned before? A family member ordered a ‘22 that’s getting here next week that we are diving right into with boltons

The 10 speed is incredible and shifts so fast it’s almost unreal, but if you are like me and just want to cruise around and enjoy shifting then go for the 6 speed. If you are planning on dragging your car then the 10 speed is a better choice.

Yes...Editing the virtual torque table in the ECU will achieve this. You add torque where you want it to shift firmer.

It seems many tuners leave this table alone and I think it's a mistake. Tuning the VTT plays a big role in how the trans shifts and engine responds to throttle input.
