    I say that the clutch has to be adjusted a little bit... is it stock clutch is it aftermarket? year of car? sti/wrx? we need to know little more about the car before accurate diagnoses =)

    i know it sounds like a dumb question but are you sure your foot is all the way off the clutch?

    Does it idle high all the time or only when you depress the clutch? And does the engine rev higher or just maintain speed, if you shift a 3k, does it stay at 3k for a second or does it actually rev faster than that?

    thanks for replys, its a 03 wrx totally standard apart from a big backbox, it idles about 700 when sitting , also the clutch bite point is right at the top so you just put youre foot on it, and it starts biting, the problem is when i try to do a fast gearchange, its revs are still up a bit, so i have to take foot of ecel pedal for a sec then change gear, hope this helps!! p.s it doeasnt seem to be as bad below the 3k mark !

    So you dont lift off of the gas pedal? that could be the problem right there because the engine rev's up WAAY faster when the clutch is in. I say completely lift off the gas pedal and see if it does it.. if not.. i think you have a case of lead foot =)

    practice more.. from the feel and context of your question you haven't had this car for very long.

    get used to it before you try rompin on it. I know, its hard.. but you'll thank yourself in the long term when you're not replacing a clutch prematurely.

    Otherwise it sounds to me like your not timing your feet right, plain old driver error/lack of experience type stuff. Practice makes perfect. Its very likely not the car.. its your feet not doing what your brain wants em to.

    When you depress the clutch under boost the BPV injects air back into the intake causing the RMPs to rise briefly. Sounds perfectly normal to me.
