Really depends on the gear ratio's too

Just a for instance...the Evo VIII and STi are pretty even in acceleration...but to make it to 60 mph...the STi needs to shift into 3rd...while the MR does not...hence it makes it faster to 60 than the STi

oh no .... the Lancer Evolution VIII is a 5 speed manual...and the Lancer Evolution VIII MR Edition is a 6 speed and it cost more..i was just wondering if the 6 speed is faster then the five speed. and if the MR edition is a better buy

faster for what top speed, 1/4 mile, or what?

faster acceleration

comes down to gear ratios for that(taking into consideration all else is the same) but usually 6 speed trannys have closer ratios which means more acceleration

Yea that's what I meant...save your money cuz the Evo IX will have everything that the Evo MR has...standard
