Little laggier than I'd like, at least I get decent gas mileage...
Hope you're making some big power with that lag, or it's pretty useless IMO

In a 4th gear roll on??

Sounds like you have some boost leaks.

To this day I have no idea what lag is. If you have lag you are in the wrong gear.

If you have 1 bar at 3500 then you should be at 3500 when you nail the throttle. Pretty simple.

If you are in 5th gear at 50 mph and expect to pull hard then you should get a mini van. Because in a performance situation you have no business driving at 2500 rpm.

This has always been my position as well. It's kind of nice when the car has a Jekyll and Hyde type performance, it's like having a nice tame commuter car and a stupid fast rocket ship all in one vehicle. Plus I love the feeling when the car transitions into boost and you slowly get sucked back in the seat. That said, being able to pull from 1800rpm in the C5 on the highway is kind of nice, but if I'm in the mood for fun I drop it into 2nd gear, which redlines up around 80mph.

I like my turbos on the laggy side and specifically, I love the old K27/8 turbos characteristics. I love it when its nothing, nothing, nothing, and 3500rpm comes around and it goes BOOM, wheel spin and all. And again, if you're on the highway, drop it to 3rd and go!

I have a Boxster with a 911 engine that has an instant response coming out of slow corners, but its still boring compared to the 951 on the highway.
