Modded CLs auto v stock CLs 6 speed

My son recently acquired a stock 03 CLs with a 6 speed with 122K on the odometer....I have an 01 CLs auto with High flow Cat, Headers, Intake, Underdrive Pulley and a few years back used to run anywhere from a 14.1 to 14.3 quarter. It's now got 160K. On occasion though it still chirps second gear on the upshift.

The first run I took the 6 speed out of the hole and had a car on it and widened the lead on his first to second upshift but as we approached 90mph the 6 banger had closed the gap and was at my bumper and by 100 mph it had the lead. Subsequent runs yielded the same result.

Boy those 6 speeds really pull at high speeds........

I guess it's time to start shopping for superchargers.........

launching the 6speed is hard too. Once he gets used to it more you should be more even out of the hole. What gear are you in at 100? Once the autos hit 4th, it's over. That sounds like it was fun though. I'd love to see another CL on the road to have a run.
