    Took the cat out for a spin tonight , cruising along about 60 km/h in drive, got hard into the throttle , downshifted to low and there was a slight backfire or miss in the engine. I was wondering would the TSB for the flash for Powertrain Diagnostic and System Enhancements (18-016-15 REV. A) help? Anyone else experience this? Anyone have a suggestion on what might cause this?

    That happens to me too. Not sure if the flash will fix it or it's just gas.

    sure it's not bumping off the rev limiter?

    Thanks for all the responses, I will check on the Rpm next time, had to keep eyes on road, traffic comes up too fast when you hit MACH 1 :eek:
