    Hey guys i have a 1998 gt , and its a automatic sadly but i have a question about it. If i were in Drive (D) if i were of the right speed could i move the shifter down to 2 (2nd) gear , or would the transmission S#i! its self? Also what is the name of my transmission?

    You have a 4r70w. If youre at the right speed itll shift into the next lower gear, increase your rpms. This could, i say could cause you to break traction, over rev the motor and or hurt the trans if you dont have it right. Again i say COULD. Alot of people do this for their own reasons. Do i recommend this? If im driving, but its your car.

    Pi swap is pretty easy and can be done in a day. Gives a modest gain as well
