    When I had my STi I would "power shift" by leaving my foot on the gas and shifting (w/ clutch) as quick as humanly possible. Just dont red line fourth and go into 3rd when you are trying to hit 5th That sounds real ugly.

    Ok, essentially you still use the clutch, but keep your foot 1/2-3/4 on the throttle while throwing it into the next gear. You just have to find the spot that best suites you. You can try it just normally shifting around town at the lower rpms first to get the hang of it. It sounds like an auto if you do it right

    The trick is that once you have thrown it into gear you don't just sidestep you clutch or else you will get the CLUNK sound that nobody wants to hear. You quickly slip your clutch like you were launching the car instead. Hope that clarified things. I totally didn't want to do this because I swore it would destroy my transmission, but just treat it like a second launch and no stress on the tranny

    Note this method will not help you if you shift too early. You will still bog
