    rpms

    when i clutch in to shift at higher rpms, my revs jump up, when i am at lower rpms, it jumps but not as high. is it just the turbo blowing? ive tried letting off the gas completley as i clutch but it still does the same. is this normal?

    Typical - I have read it is programmed in on bugeyes at least for something to do with emissions. Eventually you will figure out how to drive without it happening, but you have to kind of cheat the system. It is not the standard timing on the pedals you may be used to.

    i agree. i have an 02 sedan and i noticed that right away when i got mine. in time i got used to everything (foot timing) and i dont do it anymore even when get excited from time to time.

    I'm confused - if you mean it revs when you depress the pedal, that is typical. In contrast if it revs when you have the clutch engaged (pedal up obviously), it is slipping.

    I have heard the same thing, and car does the same thing. Although my car is a different model year, I believe that the drive train would be similar enough that it could be the same emissions related rise.
