I have come to the conclusion that the only thing wrong with my car is the tune.

The only reason it is taking so long for my gears to sync up is because the rpm hangs forever when I release the throttle. If I match revs on the downshift, it DOES shift like butter as fast I want to shift. 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... :shrug

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

Basic car stuff: Floor the pedal= GO FAST. Release the gas pedal= SLOW DOWN. :dunce:

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.

I am VERY glad to hear that this problem can be solved- my C&L tune SUCKS the brown starfish.

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.
