I've had my 08 5Spd since Feb and as far as power goes, I've noticed that if you push the gas peddle just a little past half way you reach a point where the car feels slow, but if you lift off the gas a little the car seems to speed up. I know it sounds weird but that's what it feels like and the speedo supports it.

That's an interesting observation -- wonder why that would happen? Seems to me it would have to have something to do with ECU programming, but why would be the point? Perhaps it's a result of going open loop?
My bet is that the ECU is programmed that way so that the idiots that don't know how to drive 1 don't blow the engine and 2 don't get in trouble because they can't control the car.
