The 2011 5.0 im guessing thats a 6speed rather than an 8speed. is there a big difference and if so what was it? other that 2 less gears,,,,duh! lol
i love my 8speed in my 2012
I had not taken that into consideration
If it's a 5.0 it's an 8 speed. It's not so much the two extra gears, it's the shift action. It's even quicker than the 6 speed sport tranny in my 535. Just perfectly timed, lighting quick shifts. At least the version and program in the 13.
