That Roman Mica guy doesn't know how to drive (launch) when it comes to doing acceleration runs.
I wouldn't base anything off him when it comes to acceleration wise.
Though I agree the 6 speed is a good tranny, it's smooth and reliable, it can't possibly be
where the 8 speed auto is. The 8 speed is used in uber-luxury cars and vehicles with even more power.
MPG wise, though the axle ratio and final gear ratio may be the same, clearly it must get better gas mileage. I know the EPA's testing procedures are about 2-3 decades old but in their testing they got 2 mpg better on highway, and that was with the exact same procedures they used when they tested the 6 speed too.
