While shifting at about 5500 RPM, the RPM hangs there during the shift, and you can hear the syncros trying to get everything synchronized. I plan on finding someone that can create a tune that eliminates the throttle hang-up and that will provide me with engine braking. You know, like a real engine...

Why in the world would anyone create a performance tune that allows the engine RPM to hang up like this?

Basic car stuff: Floor the pedal= GO FAST. Release the gas pedal= SLOW DOWN.
I had the same deceleration problem on a previous canned tune. With the dyno tune, the deceleration lag is almost gone. Not as positive as a throttle cable, but way better than it was.
