Someone try this...
Once your car is warmed up, come to a stop. Put the car in neutral. Bring the revs up to around 1500rpm and hold them there. Do you feel any kind of vibration?
Just curious if this is just my car or everyone else, too. It's a slow vibration that happens only at around 1500. Everywhere else is smooth.

Yup, RPI rear section with OEM x-pipe + front cat delete
There is a rhythmic vibration I can feel when the engine is held at 1500rpm. I can't tell if it's just a characteristic of the engine or if it's a miss/imbalance.
If someone else could test it out then I'll know if it's just normal behavio.

Cool, thanks. All that bearing talk on the other forum had me wondering. Sounds like it's normal though. Still gonna pull the spark plugs to see how they look. Overall my car seems to be running better since getting the OEM DME updates. Makes me wonder if there was a bug in the early 2008 engine management.
