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.
Those are my sentiments also. I worked with Doug at BamaChips (there is no tuner person or dyno where I live) until the lag was eliminated and I got the engine brake I was looking for.
