Default Sportmatic Transmission

If Saturn doesn't use the perf/norm switch, maybe they could use one of the new "sportmatic" transmissions like Mitsubishi and Dodge use.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

You could probably do it yourself. All it would take is to put the shift lever on a ball joint to allow side to side movement, and then fabricate a shift gate like Mercedes, Jaguar, etc. If the lever is left in 4, it works like the stock autoshift. With a shift gate you can shift up through the gears, or down through the gears one gear at a time without having to stare at the shifter. You would need to fabricate a set of spring loaded sliders to keep the lever from flopping around, and to keep it from skipping a shift.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
