I just took a little trip up the foothills in the twisties and I can't imagine it being half as fun with the DCT;this car rows through gears quite nicely and they got worked today. I can't say my wife was having as much fun as I was.

I can't wait to upgrade my suspension. This thing is probably much more fun.

Oh it is, I got a mk3 SE hatch with ksport coilovers and looking at doing a full steeda sway bar set up in the spring. With just the coils its a wicked fun ride.

How do you like the KSports? I'm most likely getting coils but I was waiting for BC Racing to make them, and more money of course.

I drove the DCT and didn't like it much. 5-speeds were hard to find in CA, and even harder if you were picky on colors and options. Mine ended up coming from Denver to get what I wanted - but at least I got it.

I am not "really" complaining. I bought the beast for its sporty looks, excellent handling and above average fuel economy. History has proven that I can not be trusted behind the wheel of anything over 300 horsepower. Then there is the two wheeled variety....:)
Me for 4. Actually this thing pulls hard to redline it really needs to have the limiter raised to find the true power output for sure. I'm thinking the valvesprings might be limiting factor but without knowing the specs. on them it's hard to tell for sure. Maybe Turbofocus "Tom" knows more about the internals on this engine. If I had some spare cash I'd buy a salvage motor just to tear into it I know were there is a smashed one just don't know how much they would want for it.

It is true that the engine pulls hard on the top end. Who revs their engine out in every gear? What we need is more mid range power. I am wanting a fuel controller to smooth out the notchy power curve. I am certain the problem is in the fuel controller. The guys at the Ford dealer says that the ECU isn't throwing a code. Blablabla.
