    That's a good question. I assume they have developed and tested the calibration for gear-specific boost and torque maps for both manual and auto, but I don't recall them stipulating that specifically. I would imagine so.
    The factory manual Tremec TR6060 gearbox is pretty strong as is, rated for more than 800Nm or torque.

    yes agree Colville, I think its no worries regards stick shift.
    They would tune it to suit, don't think a big deal regards this, it is sound enough the ZF is the one for concern but again they have this covered as well.

    I'm looking forward to doing a bit of back to back, or should that be side by side, testing once this is done. I'm not even going to pretend I'm gpoing to keep up. Just see how much I lose by.

    Speaking to quite a few 335 owners at AFD SA, most raised their disappointment with not having an intercooler at some point in the conversation. Almost all of them had not heard of Premcar, but vaguely remembered hearing about the availability of an intercooler and it was going to cost $25k.

    I think nearly any enthusiast wants the intercooler. Premcar for me is the ultimate and one mod that I would do. It doesn’t detract from what a XR8 should be. However the cost for that ultimate for me is too high. I look forward to seeing other members hopefully getting it.

    Every enthusiast got an intercooler, it comes standard withe the performance model....
