I think what you're describing does have to do with break-in...As well as you getting use to the car..You figure that compression is high on a new motor(hense break-in rev limiter), after 1200 miles, the rings find their seat, and probably start to allow slight bypass, therefore less compression and less HP.....I'm pretty sure that there is no software upgrade after 1200..They just free up some tacho lights/limiter...Regardless, before or after break-in..the car is heavy and pretty slow ..IMO..
Also, I finally had the chance to ride in a SMG, but couldn't convince the guy to let me drive it...But it did feel way more sluggish than my 6spd manual..In any mode that he put it in...but then again..I didn't drive it
