honda and acuras from what i know, dont have what like volkswagons's do, that thing where it decellerates a manual tranny smoothly, so it is like an auto when u let off of the clutch. any of our manuals will do what u said, so nothing to really worry about

You didn't happen to remove the throttle body dashpot to make room for a strut bar did you? The reason I ask, is that I was reading some threads on G2ic where people were talking about doing this, and the general conclusion semed to be that you could remove it, with the only side-effect being you would lose smooth deceleration - it would be rough when you took your foot off the gas.

Not to sound retarted...but I've never heard the term "dashpot" ? what are you referring to ?

on G2's just above the intake manifold are some little 'flying saucer' shaped thingy's like this:



depending on strut bar brand, there is often not enough clearance. Suggestions were: insert washers under strut bar or take of throttle dashpot.

Picture blongs to DA-MAX from G2ic. Hope he doesn't mind me borrowing it for educational purposes...
