I'm just getting into the 4-banger subject as I have been a diehard V8 fan for years. The 4-bangers have sure come a long way, that's for sure.
Neat a convert. Well welcome to the 4-banger world. You can now get rid of that mullet and put the techno on. :p

Welcome to the board too.

Now for rally/circuit/other racing, manual is obviously the choice. You tell the engine to stay in boost when you need it. Quarters...you'll be in boost the whole time once you get there.
Also don't forget the benefit of using the throttle to turn, and other things you can't do with a torque converter.

Now with an automatic you don't have to worry about turbo lag while shifting since the throttle is constant. This is another reason why automatics are good for drag.
