I was just doing some reading on whats new with the 2013 heavy duty pickups and I'm now wondering why they give the manual trans equipped trucks so much less power than the autos? 200 to 250ft-lbs is a lot & I've always been under the impression that manual transmissions in general are stronger and last longer. But it seems that is not the case with these... Does this mean that buying a stick-shift would be a bad idea if you plan on any significant power upgrades? I personally prefer to stir my gears myself but that is a big downgrade in power..
