Could you also retrofit the 6MT underbody panel?
In theory I guess that you could if they are the same size (which from memory they are) however if I also recall correctly, the 6AT pan is plastic and the underside of the 6MT is metal so I'm not sure how much the 6AT will benefit from the additional airflow.
