Have driven my FiST for about a day, and this morning was my typical freeway commute to work on FiST (about 40-45 minutes drive, could be faster but I don't go over 65 mph for now). Noticed kinda like a "WOOOOOOOOO!" sound when I'm in gear and my foot is off the gas pedal. When I put my foot on the gas again the sound goes away almost instantly. This "woooooo" sound especially heard when I'm going downhill while in gear and my foot is off the gas. Is it typical? Maybe some kind of transmission noise?

It's the turbo/intake. People have been worried about this since the beginning. You shouldn't.
Ok, I have time so here goes:

#1 I'm happy as hell you got a FiST. You'll love it.
#2 drive the piss out of it. It will thank you.
#3 Practice on being smooth with clutch and shifting. You'll get better and then you'll get better driving.
#4 Stop worrying about the fucking car and take everything you see online, other than advice from me, with a grain of salt.

I have a 2014. One of the first in the USA.
I autocrossed and rallycrossed it the past two years.
22 weekends and 32 competition days plus two solo schools and the Evo School in 2015 alone
I've done over 300 full throttle autocross runs, with hard tire-spinning starts.
I've done innumerable rallycross runs spinning the wheels and sliding the little fucker sideways like a pro.
I won the 2015 SCCA RallyCross National Championship.
I placed 10th in the SCCA Solo National Championship.
I drive the car daily to work and beyond.....

Don't read too much. Experience it.....
