I also have a 5MT and I can't say that I've ever heard this hissing noise when I shift. I hear the engine rev, and it seems to hold its RPMs high when the clutch is engaged during a shift for a longer time than I'm used to experiencing in other cars before winding down, but I wouldn't describe that sound as hissing or chirping. It just sounds like a normal boxer engine sounds when revving.

So I guess I'm unfamiliar with this hissing sound others are reporting.
