I have an automatic 12 v6 stock, does anyone know what that awesome sound is when your shifting into like 5th or 6th gear at high speeds? It sounds like vin diesel movie fast and furious! My 08 didn't make that sound. It didn't have 305 either though!

That sound is letting you know that your 2012 stang is ready to kick a$$. I have a 2011 V6 stang and I love it. Respectfully I would like to make two recommendations for a must have on your stang. If you have some extra cash, go with the flowmaster exhaust system. You can find it online for around 400 or under. So worth it. Gives the car a great aggressive sound. Louder than a stock V8. Second , go with a SCT bama tuner. Soooo worth it. Adds hp and makes the car a beast. Pulls harder and shifts way better for us auto guys.

Thanks man! I've heard a lot about this bama thing. Speaking of auto shifting, how long before the CPU learns how I drive and doesn't rev up so high before it shifts? I have 2,000 miles on my car now

Ok, so the bama tuner is the only think that's gonna make it shift better right?

Does the 2012 have auto shift. The 2011 does not have that feature. Im not real familiar on how the auto shift works. The tuner is awesome. It really makes the difference. You may notice that when you juice the pony there is a slight delay before you take off. The tuner takes care of that, no more delay and opens that throttle response. My 11 would sometimes jerk forward when slowly accelerating, it was designed to skip gears to get better gas mileage. It would go from 1st to 3rd or forth when going slow. The tuner takes care of that issue.

Did it give a kind of kick when slowing down? Mine did that so i took it to get checked and nothing popped out

Mine seemed to jerk forward sometimes when accelerating slowly. I was told that was the car skipping gears. I was told the car was designed that way to maximize fuel mpg.

Yeah i got scared at first since i bought mine used. Same with the suspension. The car bounces on some kind of roads but i found out the advantage is the car is much lighter. That is why the camaro is slower for having an independent suspension.

it CPU is not really gonna learn how you drive. Least not in a way that we will be able to notice. The shift points are determined by load, so a slight change in voltage from the throttle is gonna have an effect on how and when the transmission shifts. What we have to learn is not give it too much of the go fast pedal. That is hard, I know.

At WOT, I will hear that whooshing sound as the auto is finally forced to change gears. In fact, I captured it in my YouTube video that I'll attach.

That low turbo style woosh? At first I thought it was the rpm needle but it sounds like it quickly sucks in air. My girl thought it was suped up because of the sound. Jaja she says my stang farts.

Precisely. I still need to grab that link. It's definitely audible there.
