Is it normal to get an audible burble and occasional bark between 1st and 2nd gear under high revs?

I'm not sure if this is recent or I just haven't noticed it...

Happens only 1st to 2nd...no other gear changes. Does not occur with leisurely acceleration.

What do you think?

It is normal on some aftermarket exhausts. Are you 100% stock?

I get it all the time, but I have a turbo and Solo Performance Street Race Exhaust. This will especially happen on a turbo car with a tune and even more so on a turbo tuned car that gets less then the 91 octane fuel. So if you didn't use the same gas station, you have a tuned turbo, this could be your issue. I fill my car up at 1 of 3 stations, nowhere else unless I'm traveling, then it's 91 or 93 Shell gas only. Is this what you're talking about??? High RPM pull around 3:00

It's nothing at all like the video...just a mild burble and not always. If you shift quickly to 2nd it can be avoided. If you linger between gears its more evident I have a totally stock gxp and always use 93 octane
