The lag you experience when stepping down onto the gas pedal from a dead stop is the "turbo lag". There's about a 2 second lag for the turbo to "rev" up and then hold on....you will move after that! I have experienced the same thing.Report it
I have not had any problems pulling out fast with my ECO. If you don?t time the clutch and gas right to keep the RPMs up you will get the lag, but it is more do to the low RPM than the turbo.Report it
