For all you manual tranny folks :
Noticed something today for the first time on my 2011 6MT. While crawling in traffic the car bumps the engine speed to 1k from idle when still moving, clutch disengaged and car in a gear. Pull the stick out of gear and/or come to a complete stop and it drops down to normal idle, put it back in any gear but no clutch engagement and the revs bump back up to just over 1k. Cool.

On the flipside, when you engage the clutch in this car to shift, the revs hang momentarily (really hang, not just dropping slowly) which makes rev-matched fast upshifts in this car impossible. And that my friends is why I also have a Porsche....

The ECU reflash totally cured it.
Meaning that yours does not bump the idle in gear anymore? My ECU was
reflashed about 10 months ago to deal with a bunch of random CELs. When was your done?
