    Havent been on here in awhile. Hope all is well and happy new year! MY new ride is a 2007 Saleen s281 SC. Hope you guys can help. I like the 2v boards better than the 3v lol. Today while I was driving home from work the car was running nice and strong hence the NY winter cold weather. All of a sudden I noticed in the low rpms under a decel it almost had a buck and it felt like the drivetrain was in a better words loose or bucking feeling. I could almost hear the drivetrain engaging. It also was reving slower than usual. I turned the car off and back on and problem was gone! I am worried because this is my first boosted car. Could it be a misfire? It was weird that the drivetrain had a clunky feel to it also but it went away once i turned off and on. Thanks in advance and happy new year!

    Is that consistent, or the first-ever?

    I wouldn't sweat it until it becomes a problem, use the highest octane of gas and from a trusty fuel pump to isolate fuel being an issue. Cars change moods like people when the environment changes.

    A continued misfire will throw a code. As said i wouldn't worry about it unless it happens again.

    I just find it weird that the drivetrain had a loose feel to it. It felt like the tranny was clunky and loose. hmm. turned the car off and on and it went away.
