Since I got the extractors and exhaust done, I've noticed that while I back off the throttle to 0% when driving 70km+, the revs generally drop to say 1200rpm then it'll occasionally jump to 1500rpm then settle back to 1200rpm repeatedly.

Anyone know what could be causing this?

cheers

Mine does it too. Mainly driving around town in economy mode. I noticed it on mine even with the factory exhaust you would see the tacho move between 800-1500 but i notice it more now with the 3 inch exhaust because you can hear it now. I thought it was just a supercharger characteristic.

Just doesn't sound right though, maybe something is dirty or a sign it may need a service?

I gotta go back to the exhaust dude to check something out so I'll see if he knows about it being a common thing.

cheers
