    i have mine set to 5k right now, i plan on moving it up a little more to get it better adjusted. when you are 100% throttle it sets a rev limiter to keep the rpms up and the turbo spooled. so you just keep it floored and then hit the clutch and shift very fast, you only have about a second or 2 before it will shoot up and hit the limiter. as stated mine is set to 5k and i shift around 6000-6200

    correct i believe its about 500-600 rpm drop between gears just make sure its lower than the rpm drop between your shifts and then shift consistently around the same rpms. must bee full throttle to engage

    Yeah its with the Cobb ap. It's under tune and then adjustments and then flat foot shifting. You just pick the rpm and its sets it all up

    I find it to be more fun to be able to drive manual normally, and get fast at it. Gives you a sense of accomplishment

    I agree with you I love driving manual and I don't use flat foot all the time, only on rare occasions. It's just a fun extra

    If you rev the car up to 6000 rpm and then hit the clutch to shift the toms will drop about 500 to 600 rpms so you want the limiter for the flat foot shifting below that 600rpms

    Yes.. very similar to the features you can add with an open source tune if you wish.
