Leave the auto in there... It won't be as fun to drive but it will run potentially faster times and be more consistent at running those times.

It goes for any Drag car if thats the build you wanna go with, any car with high horsepower building to be a drag car going in a straight line is better to have as a Automatic especially if it is not AWD because all you will be doing is burning rubber. Manual Transmission is good for cornering because of being able to choose your desired gear which sometimes Auto always doesnt drop the car to the right gear.

I think you meant to say M/T no " A/T ", anyway you seem like your set on a manual transmission just get one

As far as what's the best oil... I don't know. I've heard nothing but good from people that run Royal Purple 20w50. But I've never used it myself. I run Mobil 1 Full Synthetic 15w50 and it's been great to me. The good thing about Mobil 1 is that it's more abundant. You can find it almost anywhere. Also Mobil 1 oil filter.
