The 010 has a variable geometry motor which is why I can lug along at 800rpms if I want and not buck like a bronco, that would be darn hard to program from scratch, there are HP tuners out there for it but they, in my mind should be cheaper for non-turbo cars (since no one in their right mind would ever buy an HP tuner for one anyway) but I digress.

Really, when up shifting you want to shift as quickly as possible. This captures the kinetic energy stored in the fly wheel and moving parts of the engine and transfers it to forward motion. Otherwise if you let the rpms drop to match the gear your shifting up into you allow all this energy to be dissipated and get nothing in return.

Unless I need to get up quickly, I'll let the flywheel's KE die out while I ride the car's.

thus wasting all the energy your fuel has put into the Flywheels KE.

Yep and I will glad for it since the clutch turns much of the kinetic energy into heat and powder.

I rather not replace a $500-$1500 clutch job (depending on who and when) in 150k when I can replace it after 300k.

I have an HP-tuner and got the good one the extra $150 was worth not needing a laptop in the car to scan. I might be selling it after I review the tune on my wifes car but only since I got rid of my bonneville.

I just downloaded a stock tune of your car and here are some things that you can change.
Idle (stock is 800 warm and 1000 max cold)
Cam angle for intake and exhaust based on rpm and load
DFCO Cutoffs
Enrichment point
Cat heating (also adjusting cam for cat heating)
Spark based on load rpm and cam angle
Fan speed based on coolant temp.

I wish that I lived closer to you so I could help tune it as I think that it would be fun since i have not got to tune on a car that you can controll the cam with. The great thing is there is a lot of room for improvement in the stock tune and you can enable EGR in low load by adjusting the cam timing.
