Lot's of shifting lots of time on the clutch. (for those unfamiliar TX traffic is 0-80-0 in 100 yards...) I have found that it just allows the engine to run down and then accelerate smoothly. I am assuming the engine never gets to a true steady state and given the low rpm the EFI is basically flipping around through the various maps. The extra fuel compensates for this.

1 happy camper here. So when is the cool coming? shall I preorder for 2013?
That early?
