Hi Gang,

So now that I've found out that the throttle lag at the low end that I've noticed with my recently purchased 06 is: 1. not my imagination, and 2. the result of the so-called fly-by-wire throttle. Not being much of a techie, I'd never heard of that. It's not a huge deal, but the lag is kind of annoying, and since I have a MT I sometimes still have to consciously remember to adjust my gas/clutch timing to consistently engage 1st gear smoothly.

I've also read some pretty technical discussions of how this lag can be adjusted out (way over my head). I'm also not sure that it's something to assign to my mechanic, who is great but is not a Subaru specialist.

My question is: Is this a relatively simple fix for a shop, or is it just something best not messed with and that I should just learn to live with?

Thanks Everybody.

My 07 is the same, have to give it more rpms to engauge the clutch than any other manual I have owned. I also hates being driven below 1,500 rpm and it shudders.

I hear that adding a ground wire between the engine and battery with a certain gauge can help a bit somehow.
