Just picked up a 2008 Si Sedan:

Not sure if this is normal but whenever I shift from a lower gear to a higher one (1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, so on...) the rpms seem to hang from where I left the lower gear for about 1-1.5 seconds before it starts to climb down. It does this at any rpm range. When It engages the higher gear, the car lunges foward a bit cause it's dropping to the lower rpm in the higher gear.

Anyone else experience this?

this has also been discussed like 400 times. it's not necessarily a problem (the rev-hang i mean). according to multiple articles and a little bit of research, honda purposely made it to where the revs hang. do a search - dont feel like typing/explaining.

also, notice that yeah there is a reflash available, but it's an optional fix, hence why nobody got a letter from honda stating "hey u have rev-hang!"
