Absolutely normal, nothing to worry about.

Performance shift active, it's a good thing.
No need to go to the shop.

It's a Great thing! Install a Corsa or Borla x-pipe and it will get even greater.

I will called it a brappp rather that a pop but it does actually pop. Love that and have had several compliments from people about the shift pop. Very desirable feature. Only does it mainly on WOT which is often difficult to find a place to do that.

Is it the rev limiter causing the pop or something to do with the direct injector gas system or the way the exhaust system is designed? I have heard it on my car as well. Thanks

All these cars are set up on the "Rich" side from the factory.

Millisecond fuel shut off between shifts. Or so I've read.

If you could turn it into an iTunes playlist, it'd sell!
