Does anyone know what the differences are (speed-wise) between the auto trans and manual trans?

I figured as much, I just thought someone might have exact numbers.
99% of 4cyl cars the difference time wise in a 1/4 mile is about a half second(.5) and close to the same 0-60.

PZEV 0 to 60 Times Diff. MTX VS ATX

Dear PitchBlackPZEV,

0103Venom has it right.

The Feb '04 Motor Trend had a mini-test of a 5 speed 2.3L PZEV ZTS. It's 0 to 60 was 8.2 seconds.

My 2003 2.3L PZEV ZTS ATX has posted a best of 8.7 seconds 0 to 60.

Exactly .5 seconds difference.

Regards,

Dayna 2.3

Uh the MTX's are faster. It's always like that, in any car.
Not always, a built ATX will rape an MTX in a straight line.

a stock ATX will eat up more HP than an MTX... An MTX is capable of putting more power to the wheels.

Zetec3 is correct also, a built strong ATX will rape an MTX car, but not in stock form. They are also better for consistency, no missed shifts.

Thanks for the times, Dayna2.3, exactly what I was looking for. A buddy of mine has a stock mtx and spent some time grilling me for getting the atx. I still feel like I should have waited, none the less, I love this car!

That was the worst webpage I have ever been to. If you (aphidaudio) know them, please ask them to add a link to what they (might) offer.[?|]

Darn, its seems like ZTS only has ATX
I almost got a ZX3 or a ZX5 but stood with the ZTS to be a little different.
Kinda regret not having manual and sometimes a SVT but once you get it you gotta go with it. So who has killer throttle valves,torq's and shift kits. I think I will be able to getting going pretty good:)

Every webpage is an advertisment. Links are their product. Make a product. Not a picture. No one buys a picture.

The ZTS's come in manual, I almost got one but decided to wait on the ZX3.
