I've driven dozens of MT N/A cars and never had it happen.

I agree with the excess turbo pressure partially heading upstream into the intake when you shift. Not all the pressure is released cleanly through the BOV...

The net effect is very unnatural upshifts - in order to drive smoothly, you really have to slow down between shifts.

Does anyone know if it still happens with aftermarket turbos on the WRX?
