Re: 2006 Trannies (jjmarcman)

Well.......it's rated to handle the maximum 295ft-lbs of torque. However, there is rumor that it is still detuned a bit in the early gears since the <B>claimed</B> 0-60 time for the GT is low/mid 6's versus mid 5's for the MT.<p>The 04/05 was detuned to 258ft-lbs and further detuned to 236ft-lbs in 1st/2nd gears. Hence the <B>claimed</B> 0-60 time of 7.2 versus 5.4 for the MT.<p>And welcome to the board. You may want to use the search function since this topic has been discussed often.

I've been saying all along that the 06 is less strong and quick as the 05 - and it's the trannie and torque. My 05 was a beast - my 06 is more like a beast-ish.<p>I paid almost 46500 for my 06 - but i bought it in January - with no programs. Then - add on the loss of my wrecked 05 - well...it's a good thing I love this car.<p>It's still fast tho. <p>Welcome and enjoy. A PPC tune or likewise will help a bit.<p>

The 2005 GT would be even slower still.
