Wink How much lag can you deal with?

Just a bit of fun, How much turbo lag can you deal with on your 951?

all at 1bar / 14.5 psi.

My car is a dedicated track car so not really driven under 3500 rpm.

I think it depends on the power output youre looking for.

I'd say full boost at 4000-4300 rpm is acceptable if you're making 450-500hp, but totally unacceptable to make 300hp.

Don't mind a little lag, as long as it pulls hard to redline

On 2.5 and leaking headers I had 1 bar at 3600 and now 2.8 is about 3200. As the weather cools I expect sub 3000 for 1 bar.

my 60-1 hits one bar at around 4100

Little laggier than I'd like, at least I get decent gas mileage...
