I used to think the same thing. My first rigs were all sticks, and doublers. Said I would always have a manual. Then I settled for an auto. I won't go back. Its more fun with an auto.

Why do you think an auto is more fun than a manual?

Less work and easier to drive. Concentrate on more things at once, and type of climb is easier. Only time wheeling with a stick was close to an auto was when I ran a doubler. Losing momentum when shifting and having to stay in one gear during any obstacle .


I enjoy driving manuals, just not wheeling anymore.

I'd be curious to see what it runs as well.
I'm planning on being there the 5th to play a little, so maybe I'll see a few people there.

I enjoy the added work and effort with a manual but everyone has their own opinion and likes

I wouldn't go out of my way to keep a manual trans when doing a gm swap, and I don't plan to if I end up swapping to a 5.3 in the future.

I think we have all missed the obvious compromise here: do both! Build a stroked 5.3....but if you do, be careful to never drive in opposition to the rotation of the earth or you may well reverse time do to the shear power you will have.

That's just dumb. Why stroke a stroker? Just buy a 5.3 and call it a stroked 4.8.

Done. Problem solved.

Autos are way easier on parts and if you run the five (or even a newer six) speed auto you will have a shitload of gearing options. Did I mention they are A LOT easier on parts?
