The one I test drove was a DCT. They didn't have any MTX's in stock. I ordered an MTX, though. On the test drive I experienced what you did. Thought it was cool, since it did feel like an automated manual, but it was sluggish. Sometimes shifted at weird times.

Elm 327 into torque with a 45* iat (statistically better conditions on same sectkon of road. My car was usually 8.0 0-60 while this is hovering in the 8.8 to 9.2 range. It has no consistency. Then again the Ecm probably hasn't been "ddriven" making it an ultra mega super duper grocery getting fuel economobile . But yes, I ha be. The numbers to support my statement. What are all of yours running at?

I just ran 7.8 with the DCT
This is by stopwatch (phone), and traction control off, from the time I let off the brake to where the speedo crossed 60. +- one or two tenths maybe. With 1/4 tank, SelectShift (holds a little closer to redline) and running 93 octane it would probably do closer to 7.5.

50 degrees F, 50% humidity, had been driving the car almost an hour so it was running at full temp.

GREEN drop-in filter, snorkel delete, otherwise stock.
