what the hell. that video of the supra is exactly not turbo lag.

Curious how the Lambo owner knows to drop a gear and punch it, but the supra owner just plants his foot in it and knows it'll come "some time".

and the guy who posts it decides that the "last 2 pulls show it nicely" that's because in the last 2 pulls the lambo pulls away the farthest. whateves, that lambo has no chance against that supra even with his no warning blast offs. Standing start that supra would be able to brake boost and smoke the **** out of a merc.

Also the "lag is defined by putting accelerator down and car not accelerating" well..no, his car is still making power before the turbo pressurizes just not good power. just the same with a supercharger, or a v-tech engine or ...well even an N/A miata, if you've got high flow stuff don't expect to "take off" until you've hit 4.5k.

this is the same guy who tells people that megasquirt blows up cars and that stock computers with piggy backs are a better tune because factory computers are sooooooooo perfectly tuned.

When I drove an MSM I hardly noticed there was a turbo. I wouldn't call that laggy at all.
