If both were stock, without a doubt the manual should win.

The 4.0l is only like 45cc more displacement, isn't it? I think power & torque rating were the same on the first 4.0lt engines, as the previous 3.9lt engines anyway..

And we all know manuals go harder

TQE, SWB, ATPS, Worst of the E-series.. and I wouldn't have it any other way

not 45cc, 35cc less than 1% the engine capacity.
