Now that my R has some milage I have done some full acceleration tests in 2nd and 3rd gears...<p>Now I noticed an interesting effect... something that I hate...<p>When I shift @5000, push clutch, release throt. somewhat, engine surges to 6000... do it @5500 and it races to 6500... makes it impossible to get a proper upshift...<p>To be clear... that has to change! Anyone know what this could be... I suspect either software or a bad BPV.<p>At the shift point, it should hold RPM when I push the clutch and release throt, then I should drop RPM somewhat to be able to catch the next upshift point.<p>Any ideas ?<p>Regards,<br>Coolknight

turbo overrun, shift more quickly (really)

you sure you're not sub-consciously keeping your foot on the throttle or maybe pressing it right before you shift? I used to have this problem but then I just made it a point to completely take my foot off when shifting.

sequence should be release gas as clutch is heading to floor...

Same thing happens to me when I'm running up through the gears quickly. I don't like it either, but I think it is in the software design to keep exhaust emissions down (my guess). What I hate is that it is so audible with my lack of muffler, I'm sure nearby drivers can hear it and think I don't know how to shift. I DO, and the R is the only car that does this that I know of.

In my case, I've often blamed my slow '04 ECU, but Coolknight's is an '06. Could it be a bad throttle position sensor?
