Anyone have one of these besides me.??
Has anyone heard any complaints of them causing jerkyness at high rpms between gears???

My car, when in any gear at 3000rpm (especially 3rd, 4th, & 5th), if i let off the gas or barely let it off it will jerk real good ("bounce") untill i either give it gas or completely let off. I heard at one time it may be my Trick-flow plenum???

Sounds more like a tuning issue to me.

Yeah that definitely sounds like a tuning issue or maybe something not quite right in the u-joints. Maybe the pre-loading or backlash in the differential isn't quite right.

I have the trick flow on mine, my car also sort of does something like that in fifth gear. I just wrote it off to gears and alot of horsepower. Beside I rarely use fifth anymore, I trap around 120 in fourth. I'm thinking about a built C4 for mine anyway.

That's kinda odd. It seems like the plenum design would be simple and straightforward enough that just about all the manufacturers would have about the same thing. I haven't experienced anything like this with my C&L plenum.
