I believe so.

Yup, I think something else that will factor in is the gear ratio. Will it be geared to have the same top speed as the SMG version or will it be geared for the same 0-60? There is no way that a 6 speed will be able to provide both. Chances are it will be geared somewhere in the middle. A little slower acceleration and a little less top end speed.
