The wife demanded automatic. I wanted an M6. We got the automatic. See how that works? But I have no complaints with the automatic. I agree, it does feel like it has to "spool up" and isn't an instantaneous burst of power like an M6 would have, but when the drivetrain finally figures out you want to go, it will push you back in the seat. I'm not disappointed. But I'm always forgetting to take off traction control, etc. so it might be some torque management stuff getting in the way. I dunno.

Besides, it's great that if I want to row through some gears, I always got my 02 SS M6 to do that with.

I haven't driven an M6 2010, but can't see it would be that much different than the 02. When I see another Camaro, the last thing I care about is which transmission it has.

I can say this for automatics, my Maybellene is a A4 with the TQ management tuned out and the line pressure increased, when the twin turbos hit boost, they stay there and it becomes one long angry pull... As opposed to one of my manual turbo cars, which must re-spool its larger turbo after every shift. A boosted auto can be a thrill, and I'll never have to use the infamous "I missed 3rd" excuse...

However, manuals are also a blast...

Well the L99 is a great engine but when you have the LS3 with the manual its just that feeling of the classic power and performance. To me I think it just is the fact of having a stick.

To me, the biggest difference is the AFM. It can be tuned out, but for those that don't tune their car because they want to retain their warrantee, I've heard it's kind of annoying.

Stock for Stock, the comparisons have been done ad nauseum on the boards (Manual is faster!! , Automatics are most consistent!), but they are both great cars.

I prefer the manual because it's just more fun to drive it that way.

My L99 with Roto Fab CAI, Kooks17/8" headers along with Magna Flow Competition Exhaust and Dyno tuned is a QUICK SCOOT! (rhp 364).

Tuned out the AFM...so much better. MPG still about the same...20.3 vs 20.0 mixed conditions.

When your car pushes you back in the seat and snaps your head back when you hit the gas pedal then I would not worry about automatic vs manual.

My L99 does both and it is quick enough for me.

The Camaro is so much a sports car!

Nothing wrong with the auto SS at all, it is a Chevy Musclecar notheless. Some days I wish I got the auto, some days I am glad I got the manual. I never ever wish I got the musclecar look-alike V6.

I have had both auto and stick muscle cars, my opinion its hard to beat a built or tuned auto at the dragstrip. My SS auto stock except for drop in k-n filter went 12.95 at 107, not bad for a slushbox.

I have 19,275 on my L99 and I've loved every mile I've put on it. I like both the LS3 and L99 but I wanted the auto and don't regret it.

My now 10,000 mile slushbox is damn fast stock. It's got that neck popping get up and go. You will outrun 95% or more of the manuals out there (Well their drivers anyway), despite what everyone claims they are not professional drivers.
The Auto is perfect... Every time... and they are not.
Be happy with that slushbox my friend and welcome to the club

L99

Had my Camaro since 11/6, and 3500+ miles... I love this engine. I think both engines are too quiet, when stock... you need to get a CAI, at least, to give some sound to your engine (no matter which). From day 1 (3 miles), this engine has run like a monster (the brutally fast kind)!

I do miss rowing through the gears, and the tap shift just isn't/won't ever be the same. :(
But I don't miss the damn clutch in LA traffic.
