    Factory stock the A6 car is already has stronger overall gearing in the first three gears than the MN6, especially in first and second, with the MN6 surpassing it in fourth. I would venture to say from a dig the A6 car will pull away from the MN6 only to get caught later in the run if driven properly. From a highway roll at 80+ the MN6 should walk the A6 since the very slight gearing advantage in 3rd won't overcome it's rwhp disadvantage.

    Bench racing at it's best.

    Overall gear ratios by trans type:

    A6 with 3.23..............MN6 with 3.73.......A6 with 3.73............MN6 with 4.10

    1: 12.98...................1. 9.92................1. 14.99..................1. 10.91
    2: 7.62....................2. 6.64................2. 8.80....................2. 7.30
    3: 4.94....................3. 4.85................3. 5.71....................3. 5.33
    4: 3.71....................4. 3.73................4. 4.29....................4. 4.10

    Another variable, one we don't know and might not be able to compute, is what torque specs are. I am betting with the engine torque and car weight the torque converter will be on the tight side. A tighter 'verter will lower heat and might be able to get away with towing.

    Here they are. If Iknew the exact OD of the tire I could get them exact, but I plugged this into a calculator using the tire size of 285/35/19. Different manufacturer's have different OD's with the same size tire. Guess I could have looked on tire rack, but this is close enough. In MPH...
