      Does the Manual transmission cars have a bigger turbo or are they the same as the automatic cars ???? Also is the 5 speed much faster 0-60 and 1/4 miles than the automatic ??? If so how much faster or quicker ?? Thanks for any info. God Bless.

      No, they both have the same engine/turbocharger.

      I, and some magazines, think that the 5-speed manual is quicker. As long as you know how to shift and at the right points, you can shave 0.2 to 0.5 secs from 0-60.

      Yes the 5 speed should be faster. But when I drive my wifes 855 turbo (Auto) and mash the pedal, except for the initial startup, there's no turbo lag when its going (shifting) through the gears. I beat her when we impromptu race so my car is faster, but her car seems faster to my butt when driving it.
