some say that it wil be cheaper to sell it and buy a M6.

A friend of mine did it (sold his 590rwhp M6 and bought an Auto).....he wanted an Auto trans for the 1/4 track....

It can be done, but its much easier to just trade or sell your car and get a manual.

There's probably someone with a manual that wants an auto. You can just work out a trade.

Typically, better traction and you can't miss a shift. There are people that do very well in manuals but not many.

not worth it....a lot of work and a lot of parts. Also if you're worried about your warranty, say goodbye to your drivetrain warranty. ALSO, it wont be as fast off the line because the A6's came with a 3.27 rear, the M6's have a 3.45 (the auto's have a 4.03 1st gear vs. a 3.01 in the Tr6060).

either trade it in for what you want, or just tune the A6 and enjoy it (it really is a different beast with a good trans tune).

LS3 is faster than the L99 STOCK..
But as soon as you start adding mods L99s begin to shine

Check the 1/4 Mile Fast list:

AFM is only available through GM on A6 Camaros, although I wouldn't be surprised if it could be made to work on a manual with an expert tuner.

a manual trans w/ the 3.27 rear is going to flatout suck.
