So a friend of mine is looking into some 300's and he was wondering if the stock 5 speed tranny is stronger, or if the e-shift auto is stronger. Basicly, if he turbos it, will the auto hold up better than the manual? Given he gets a tranny cooler and the vc mod, but no tc since he wont be drag racing...

so yeah, which can take the most power... after the proper mods.

It all depends how much HP you want......an auto will hold more than a manual.

Manual = 100x more fun than auto.

But the auto tranny should hold up to 400 RWHP where the 5MT will only hold around 300 RWHP.
