I could not do it without help from a Morgan owner as I do not have access to such car in Sydney, Australia.
In the past I successfully developed QREVS software "remotely" for an owner in the USA of a Honda model fitted with an engine we do not get in Aussie.

Hello Steven, the world is so small:) I found your homepage half a year ago and posted it here in some other thread because it might be a well performing workaround. Good luck and maybe you all have a good success that could be a solution for many riders.

My Friend who recently took delivery of a U.S. 3.7 2019 Roadster Now has several 100 miles and has experienced "Rev Hang", however so far it has not been a problem for Him. He says. I still have not driven His 3.7 and as the Weather is iffy doubt I will be able to until Spring.

Just a thought:

Our Jan-17 MINI Clubman seems to have a feature which may be relevant. The car has a fly-by-wire throttle - so there is elektickery between foot and throttle response. It also knows which gear you are in - it has an annoying display which tells you which gear you are in and which gear you should be in. I have noticed that when, for example, changing down from 4th to 2nd in advance of a very tight bend, the car automatically increases the revs to match the gear to the road speed. Yet another automated thing that takes pleasure away from driving.


Could it be that the 3.7 ECU has this feature clumsily disabled?

Yep, probably a bent paperclip randomly nailed between two un-used inputs grin2

Out of interest Paul is yours petrol or diesel? Our 2016 Cooper D Clubman has the recommended gear indication but not, that I've noticed, the rev increase you mention.

Petrol. It’s the 1.5 3 cylinder turbo
