The engine is just super slow to rev down.
Same here. My only real pet peeve of this car.

Mine used to rev hang horribly. It seems normal with the V6 as others have speculated. It hasn't done it since I addressed the issue during my last BAMA tune adjustment. I thought I'd need a mechanical fix but it appears they did something with the tune that hits it just right.

No tune is supposed to be the cure. Flywheels are for big spendas.

Sadly I don't have the means to spend big. Happily a tune did work. :shiny:

Still, I'd throw in a new flywheel at the first possible chance. A new DS will come first though.

Yeah I haven't decided whether to do the DS as well, I'm starting to get annoyed by the looseness.
