Tune can get rid of it, and it IS annoying, especially if you're used to using engine braking as much as possible as a habit. The "wait" before it starts idling down after you take your foot off is a pain - by the time it starts to slow down you're ready to grab another lower gear & go through the wait again - since once you touch the gas to rev. match the waiting period starts again...

In "regular" shifting, once I got a tach. installed, I found I had to get off the gas early when shifting to avoid the "bump" in rpm after clutching...

And yeah, it's supposed to be an "emissions" feature from what I've heard.
