Default Sticky throttle cable?

Anyone else have this problem? Any fixes? I don't want to go to the dealer because it would involve me removing my nitrous setup

I presume you've manually operated the throttle body with your hand and observed whether the return springs seem to be working OK?

same thing, sometimes it became up shifting without letting the gas out, rpm would hold at say 3500 momentarily, then drop

could be the heavy fly wheel? which i doubt

It's an emissions thing - there is still fuel/air mixture to be burned so rather than sending the un-burned fuel out the tail pipe, the ecu tells the engine to burn it. That is why the rpms will stay steady or rise momentarily after you let off the gas, particularly if you've been on the gas hard.
It's been discussed before, which makes me think it is normal. A few people mentioned there cars (from other manufacturers) did it as well.
