Okay . . . My brother a 1998 v6 mustang (manual) . . . and i have a 99 v6 cougar (automatic) . . . everyday he pokes fun at me for having a slow car and that his car can beat mine any day . . . I somewhat believe him being that i gave up some power in buying the automatic . . . but my question is . . . what about a manual cougar and a mustang?
