iv read somewhere that the Auto ones have more gear reduction for more power, but either should work.

I have used manual in auto and vice versa; either will physically function. IIRC, General Disorder was the one that has said that there is a gearing difference... I haven't seen this but that means little or nothing. I *have* seen FSM specs that states the auto version has a higher KW rating (at least for a certain year).

Yeah - I like using the auto's as they spin faster, and it doesn't sound like my battery is dieing all the time :rolleyes:
