haha, I bet she'll be in for a surprise when she needs to merge fast onto a highway. Imagine, DCT drops to 6k as she is punching it, all of a sudden she's holding on for dear life, going sideways. .... haha, "somebody gonna get hurt real bad".

(give or take). Now I've put another 100+ miles on it and it's working almost better every day.
Humm. Thats not normal.

So far this is my only complaint with the kit other than one random stall which threw no error codes and was fine after a restart.

Has anyone else had the same experience and is it normal?

Thanks in advance!
Dame! I have 625 just install few weeks ago and got exactly the same situation. When cold start, the idle is very unstable and the car just rev itself, sometime it even stall if you drive it while the engine is cold!
I hope it will get better after I put few more miles in it!

Put some miles on it and make sure you are using good petrol

There are 2 circumstances I have found that create erratic idling, at least for me:
1. When it's sub -20 degrees, I will get some rough idling for a couple min's until the car has a chance to warm up a bit
2. When I use 94 octane from "Husky" (containing 10% ethanol) and for the most part my car does not like that gas and the idle will surge quite often. Same thing happened when I pumped it in my FBO 335.
I normally use 94 octane from "Petro Canada" which contains no ethanol and I find my car runs great, without the erratic idling.

I wish!

Does Ultra 94 contain ethanol? Does Petro-Canada still offer an ethanol-free gasoline?
Ultra 94 contains ethanol. Due to the fact that various fuel grades are blended at the point of sale, most grades of Petro-Canada fuel may now contain up to 10% ethanol. This represents a change from the previous state, where premium fuel was ethanol-free at Petro-Canada.


FWIW my SC'd DCT M3 does the same thing.
