XR6 auto vs manual

I've had my EB XR6 since 2000, it's auto and it beats mjy mates skyline which is manual, but, can anyone tell me if it's worth putting in a manual. Is there much of a power difference between auto and manual?

no *power* difference between auto and manual really, but the manual will make your car noticably quicker.

Re: XR6 auto vs manual

yeah older autos aren't very good at keeping the power flowing. Im not sure how new (as in 2004 made not reco'd) go, I would hope the power loss is lessened after 20 odd years.
