All speculation until the platform is released..everyone knows that the car makers are notorious for fooling around with specs and output numbers for a variety of reasons. The main ones being the EPA and insurance companies

Oh I am paying attention and I do have common sense..The way you posted made it sound like the DCT is something special and new..meh.

That is a plus IMO, Corvette staying true to its lineage..go see what the MTs bring vs ATs..ehh..this is an old argument.//
