That's how I do it now and its lame lol
What's killing me the most is the throttle response. I have to heel toe the gas pedal for what seems like a full second before the engine revs up for a smooth downshift.
Xcessive Mfg. Makes a throttle body spacer to help eliminate the lag, I found it helps with the heel toe. Doesn't fully fix the issue, but for $25 it's nice to have.
