well what I really meant and what really actually matters is that you don't feel that empty space between 0 -3k rpm whether it be becasue the extra displacement or quicker spooling turbo, doesn't really concern me or the average person that drives the car. What matters is that you get an instant push into the seat and that is what happens in the STI, but if youreally get down to it on the techincal aspect of it, there has to be some what you would call a turbo lag, and versus the S/C which is belt driven and the way the turbo system is designed it will be slower in the response. However NA cars like someone pointed out also do not really pick up untill you hit around 2.5k rpms, these being german cars that I have driven BMW, AUDI. I noticed that japanese cars are different in that respect were the low end and top end is more even like the hondas, lexus. I am speaking from expirience and not from techincal aspect becasue thats not my thing. I drive them!! I don't build them.
