Is it normal for my RPMS to operating/climbing slow as **** like it's struggling to build rpms in between gears? (I.e) shift to 2nd gear @ 3k drops to ~1200 then builds sslllllooowwwww struggleee etc..forced to give it even more gas
Which trim and year? Obviously a manual. However, I doubt you're dropping from 3K to 1200 in a single gear change. The ECO has the widest gear ranges and when I shift at 3K it drops at most to 2200 RPM.
I'm wondering if the turbo's dead. Without a turbo spun up by the 3000 RPM, what happens when you shift? I'd think the lack of a turbo would be a lot like "no torque". Yes, I am assuming a 1.4T, not a 1.8.
