I also would love to have an autotragic idle on the MT since to me its just a waste having it idle at 1k when the auto is usually around 600rpms.

I have often thought of buying an HP tuner for the 010 cobalt XFE just to force DFCO to happen instantly when gas pedal TPS=0 and RPMS are above some point. This would speed my shifting, reduce clutch wear (when I am forced to be in a hurry) and it would allow a mini P&G as I shift from 1->3->5.

Anyone have such a device there are a couple things I would love to tweek on the cobalt but I can't justify $500+ to attempt it.

Hmmm Megasquirt 2 standalones are less than 500 but they don't have sequential injection...I think they might be able to control the throttle though. Obviously would be a lot of work to adapt.
