Hi, new to this site, looks like a great way to get help!
I have just conv my ED F/mont to manual. It has got a bit of a flat spot when u floor the throttle and change gear but otherwise runs perfectly fine(it still has the auto ecu). It always had the flat spot but is more noticeable now that its manual. I did a 700km run in it a coulple of Saturdays ago and it went bloody well! Fuel use was 9.4l/100km doing 110-120kmh most of the time. Was wondering if anyone had any ideas on where the flat spot would be coming from.

You need to chip the ECU (J3 chip), or resistor trick it, or buy a manual ecu. The auto ECU will decrease your power by putting the car into torque limit mode or something.
