Automatic vs. Manual: Which Is Better?
One of the most common questions in the auto world is the very basic
question: What's the difference between the automatic and manual
Because I have been asked this question so many times, I figured I'd make
an elaborate video describing the differences between the two.
Thanks for watching!
Difference between automatic and manual?
Which is better for performance?
Which should I get for my first car -- auto or manual?
If you have ANY other questions at all, please feel free to let me know!
Grudge Race 2012 Mustang 5.0's auto versus Manual at Famoso Drag Strip
Great DA and exceptional track prep for daytime T&T. Dead stock manual
trans 5.0 with 3.31 diff and OEM 19" tires and pro driver makes some
passes. Slow auto trans 2012, 5.0 GT, camera car with GoPro HD takes a
lap and does some video. And, then, the grudge race, but the manual trans
car red lights big time and still got run down by the auto car. The new
2012 5.0 GT's run very well and do not disappoint.
mustang gt 5spd vs mustang gt auto
at the time 06 gt was bone stock with an auto..has since ran 12.9 with very
few bolt ons. the 04 gt few bolt ons had 253 hp and 289tqe at the time to
the wheels...now 265hp and 300tqe....
10 Reasons Why We Prefer To Drive Stick

How to make your 2010-2014 Mustang GT REALLY LOUD for free! (sound tube mod)
This is a video on how to quickly and easily make your 2010, 2011, 2012,
2013, 2014 (or any year after 2010 really) Ford Mustang GT MUCH louder inside the car
when you are flooring it. Also known as a 'sound tube mod or modification'
This does NOT harm your car or void your warranty in any way. Basically,
when Ford redesigned the car for the 2010 model year, they made it a
quieter of a ride... but when you floored it, it was too quiet, so they
decided to add a 'sound tube' that routes SOUND (not air) from the intake
after the filter directly into the cabin next to the firewall near the
driver's foot well. Now however, the car was too loud when floored, so they
added a series of small pieces of foam inside this sound tube (1 piece of
foam for the 2010, 2 (possibly 3) for the 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014. etc) This
made the car loud when floored, but not too loud, as I guess some people
don't like it to be too loud. For those of us that do want to make the car
louder, here is what you have to do! Its unbelievably simple and there is
pretty much nothing you can do to hurt your car. Watch this video, and then
go do this for yourself, it's truly amazing. It makes the car sound louder,
the engine meatier and makes the dash literally shake from the abundant
If you have any questions please feel free to ask below, or send me a
message. To undo this mod (because you feel it is too loud) simply do the
reverse of this video, and put the piece of foam back in, or cut it in half
to make it louder than stock, but quieter than the full mod. This is
something ALL 2010-201* Mustang GT owners should do, Its
quite simply amazing.

Thanks for your time, and good luck!
Test Driving Supercharged Ford Mustang Maaco Medusa SEMA Show Car
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
I thought you'd like a look at this 2006 Ford Mustang Show Car built for Maaco by
Bolt-Onz Luxury and Performance Specialties in Abington, Pennsylvania.
Maaco had this car built for the 2006 SEMA show and it's one impressive
machine. It's sporting a Saleen S281 Extreme body kit, vented hood, side
skirts, 20" Saleen Wheels, and it's painted in Chromalusion Pure Fire
Prism. It's powered by a 4.6 SOHC V8 topped with a Saleen Twin-screw Supercharger. The 550 horsepower is funneled
through a close ratio six-speed manual transmission. Inside, you'd find a
fully custom interior with Saleen leather seats, two onboard computers, 10
inch monitor in the dash, 15 inch monitor in the trunk, GPS, and Track Net
security. The car is also riding on four wheel air suspension that can be
monitored and adjust via computer. This is one impressive machine that has
everything. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

2012 Mustang GT 5.0 Automatic vs 2012 BMW M3 DCT (BOTH NEW AND STOCK)
**ALSO, CHECK OUT MY OTHER VIDS AND SUBSCRIBE!!** 2012 Mustang GT 5.0 Automatic vs 2012 BMW
M3 SMG (BOTH NEW AND STOCK)
We were a little curious with two cars like this who would put the power to
pavement in straight line drag races. We did try running from a stop, but
only the Mustang could get
traction, the BMW spun like crazy over and over, so we went from a roll to
take traction out of the equation! Both cars are stock, the Mustang 6 speed automatic, and the
BMW has 7 speed DCT transmission, both are V8's, and both make about 400 horsepower. The Mustang sticker price if
$36,xxx, however the M3 is slightly less then DOUBLE the price of the Mustang, over $60,000! More
vids to come, enjoy!
Automatic vs Semi-Automatic vs Manual - Part II
Manual transmissions were the first and most common type of transmission to
be fitted in cars to benefit from different gear ratios between the
respective propulsion of engine and drivetrain. They basically involve
the activation by the driver of the clutch by a foot pedal, the positioning
of gears by a gear stick, and the respective coordination of the fuel
supply through a throttle pedal.
Manual transmissions cost less to manufacture and their reparation in case
of malfunction is less complex and costly than that of automated ones. As
compared with fully automated devices, it also allows for a potential
greater fuel efficiency (albeit not necessarily) as the driver can judge
what especial conditions of driving allow for taller ratios and lower
supply of fuel. The risk of engine breakdown due to over-revving has
additionally been significantly reduced through the fitting of electronic
More significantly, however, the greater advantage of manuals lies in the
substantially different driving experience. Automobiles with manual
gearboxes situate the driver in command of all the important functions of
the vehicle, such as gear selection, amount and duration of clutch
activation, fuel supply, all of whose related combinations allow for an
infinite range of subtle variations of the dynamics of the machine.
Automobile enthusiasts, that is, individuals related to vehicles seeking
the sensorial experience of driving for its own sake rather than as a means
of transport or of merely attempting to move measurably faster, tend to value all the mechanical
operations implied by active driving rather than seeking promised marginal
gains in speed by the delegation of functions to the vehicle's automated
systems. The experience of directly controlling and operating the main
variables and functions of the vehicle and for the driver to be organically
integrated with the whole of the machine is believed to be of greatest
appeal to car enthusiasts.

The Basic Parts of an Automatic Transmission (Part 1)
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
This is part one of my front wheel drive (FWD) automatic transmission
dissection video. In this video I cover the operation of clutches, bands,
accumulators, clutch drums, the oil pump, the valve body, valves, check
balls, seals and 'o' rings, as well as the construction and function of
many of the internal hard parts of an automatic transmission. To be honest
a rear wheel drive transmission isn't much different as many of the basic
components are the same. I guess what I'm saying is that you could use the
information in this video to have a basic understanding of a rear wheel
drive automatic transmission also. It is just a basic overview of the main
components. I don't get into theory and operation so much. Just the
general operation and identification of the parts. I may make more videos
on this topic based on the comments I get so feel free to ask questions and
perhaps I'll answer them in a future video on this topic. There will also
be a separate video on the parts and operation of the torque converter as
well. When that is posted I'll post links below to that video.
