I posted in italia490's thread about this. I had my first oil change done and told them about the issue I am having. They said there was no ECM re-flash for the manuals. When I told him a guy on NASIOC has one that had the same problem, got an ECM reflash and it fixed the problem, they couldn't give me a straight answer.
Now, I am going to bring it back with the thread pulled up on my phone, and show them the part of the service invoice from italia490's thread, and see if they can just do what they did to his car.

Some people think an ECM reflash is all about getting more horsepower when it is sometimes just about getting better throttle response. If we found a tuning company to look into our ECMs maybe they can find a couple horses, but more importantly smooth out the throttle response.
