That looks somewhat normal. Not sure if the 5spd tannies have the same chatter as the getrag 6spd but that is a good hint that you might.

Looks normal. You have some breathing mods so that may be helping it be a little more rev happy.

I concur.Sounds/looks like a normal rev up.You can really tell if,as you engage the clutch, it seems to stall easily at low rpms.(no flywheel inertia)

You will damn near hit the rev limiter doing a quick half throttle if you had a light flywheel

I dunno it looks like the revs just drop pretty fast and we all know that our cars don't drop the revs that well. I would bet you do have one.

min useally take a little bit to fall ecspecially when it its about 1100rpms it'll saty there till I come to a complete stop. Even when I'm not moving it hovers near 1100rpms then falls. It also hangs when I rev it.
