I'll take a built auto over a manual any day of the week if I'm doing the work. You may not have the novelty of shifting your own gears but eliminating human error makes it do its job so much better.

For trucks,yes. For muscle cars I will NEVER have an auto. Just takes the fun out of it imo

Manuals are fun to drive. And in most cases hold up to power a lot better. As when you drive a manual for a length of time hardly ever human error. I can have a manual in the next gear before the auto even considers changing gears.

I said properly built here, not stock for stock lol but if we did, in stock form the torqueshift auto our 6.0 took off and pulls hill way better than the old 7.3 5spd did. I really don't buy that you're perfect and have never missed a shift and can shift on a hill without loosing momentum clutching. After the tuning work BTS did on the torqueshift it nails shifts pulling loads and locks up exactly when it needs to, it never misses a beat.

I didn't say I was perfect and I wasn't talking about pulling uphills. Usually when I'm shifting that fast I'm racing someone. And I've driven manuals for so long it's just second nature to me. And driving truck will show if your any good at manual or not. If you miss a gear up or down hill your in trouble. I rarely even use a clutch. And those are two different motors made in two different eras so you can't really compare that. My next truck will be a manual no if ands or buts about it and it will be hooked up to a trailer 80% of the time. Never had a problem shifting on grade and we have steeper grade here than anywhere back home.
