i've noticed somethign for some time, but never bothered to look into it.

if i'm on the gas, and then shift, for a *split* second...right after I let off the gas and start to shift, I feel a momentary spike in power. as if the car built up more boost for just a second.

i'm assuming that as I let off the gas, the intake must shut, and all the boost that is built up must momentarily get "bottled up" in the turbo, and cause the boost to spike for a split second - just until the bypass valve can open and bleed off the pressure....

i assume this is normal and it's wont' damage antyhing, but i figured i would ask you all if you notice the same thing.
