For the ultimate shifting performance Acura has a few different dual-clutch transmission DCT options. But only the 8-speed variant offered in the 1st generation ILX and TLX has a torque converter for managing low-speed accelerations. DCTs offer smoother and faster gear changes by using sensors to ask a second clutch to prepare the next anticipated gear ratio. This allows for near instant engagement with a negligible loss in overall torque during acceleration.
I have an Acura 3. I was wondering if it is possible to swap the tranny with a 5 speed. It is great as an automatic but it is not wat i want.
