It is an automatic. I don't get into the throttle too much, but my wife says she can feel some gains and says that it doesn't take near as much throttle to accelerate.

She did say that she burned some rubber today without even trying.:D

After reading through it there is one typo. The other socket is supposed to be 12 mm not 1 mm.

The ydr is the same as the fujita but cheaper, you can damn sure hear the sucking of air with the short ram. And the ydr comes with a K&N filter as well.
Ebay, $69 with free shipping
