I don't worry about excessive shifting etc. only have a 5 SPF though.
Blipping the throttle is an entry into a driving technique called "Rev matching" or "Compression deceleration", it saves clutch and transmission life, and is the PROPER way to drive a manual transmission. It doesn't matter where I drive or what I'm driving, if it has a manual transmission, I rev match it, even 4 cylinder rangers haha.
