The manumatic gear change is about what I'd expect. It's a lot faster than the gear change I had in my 2003 Infiniti G35 and no worse than what was in my 2007 BMW 530i.So I've been off the forums for 2+ years...
and i come back and find this thread at the top....
Dead pedal delay has always been a problem with my car/the car since I've test drove it. Quite frankly how the engine & trans has turned me off of V8s favoring 4 or 6 turbo manual. btw itching for the Abarth... but waiting for next gen.. 5 sp key start is so 1989. too close to my first car.
I removed the flapper completely and tested a couple of days later as mentioned in the above post. in order for me to accelerate I needed to full throttle then back off the throttle for driving. now all i need to do is 1/4 1/2 anything and the response is near immediate (exactly as desired).
I've read thru the pages of msgs and to be honest didnt take a close look at where the piping is routed. Do you think the pupose of the flap is to keep water from getting sucked up ?
amazed this was all thats required !!! thank you !
now if you can just figure out why the manumatic is slow to shift
