Default Engine revving?

Is it normal for the engine to rev to approx 2000rpms then back down to about 1000 - 1500 when coming to a stop (i.e. stop light, stop sign, etc)?

It is a 2005 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport SE with a 5 speed trans. (non-turbo)

still rippin' hard


No. Btw your car idles at 750rpms, but not 100% sure since you have a non-turbo. It should only idle at 1.5k-2K at startup and slowly go down.

I have the same "problem" on my STi. During driving when i'm going to stop the car and I engage clutch engine rpm drops to 750 and then jumps to 1000 or so. it occurs from time to time. I used to have 06 wrx and that did the same. I think it's normal.

Does this on my STi. The tuners I have spoke with tell me its normal. They plugged up just to make sure and everything runs good.
