If you have a GTP with a 6 MT, you have the edge over the GXP. If you have the 'Manu-matic' with the GTP, is is a driver's race.Hey has anyone lines up these 2 to see which one is faster bone stock ? just curious... I have an 06 GTP with the 3.9 just wondering if I pull up beside a GXP "IF" i could take him or not ? ha ha ha ... Just a little Curious..
That's pretty much what I keep hearing. Witch is good because I have the GTP.
Must be the driverits very common knowledge that the g6 cant shift for crap until tuned, torque management and shift points from the factory are just pathetic
i've run a 3.6 gtp up here multiple times at the track and the result is always the same, me with a 15.7/15.8 and him with a 16.0 or higher
I agree with the new auto trannies there can be alot faster due to a human not shifting. Look at the new Lexus IS-F technology. I personally think with me shifting my manual Im doing better...its human nature to think were better than computers.The 3.9 240 horsepower GTP vs. the 3.6vvt 252 horsepower 6 speed GTP is a close race but the edge goes to the 3.6 once you get into the higher gears ( 80mph and more ).
As far as manual vs auto is concerned todays technology means computers shift better than most humans have the ability to do.
Take look at the independent tests on these same cars and compare. Of the various auto industry magazines i.e. Road & Track, MotorTrend, Car and Driver, none of them have the 3.9 faster than the 3.6 in 0-60 or 1/4 mile times.
