i have a v6 g8, and in fooling around in manual mode with me shifting, the car feels faster. i don't know if its just an illusion from me feeling cooler because i'm shifting, or if it actually is.

edmunds and some other sites say the v6 0-60 time is around 7 seconds, do they achieve that in sport mode or manual mode do ya think?

and...which do you think is quicker, sport mode or manual mode? (assuming you shift at about the same rpm sport mode shifts)

I almost always drive in manual. Both V6 and V8. It's just more fun around town. The GT is more fun because of the rev matching which the V6 doesnt have.

I don't like the 1-2 sec delay on D or S mode when you mash on the pedal on the hwy.... Manual mode for me like Karl said...
