    Re: a different way to get rid of boost lag?

    Another method of improving response or reducing the lag would be a twin turbo schema of the mighty mk4 supra's.....small turbo for the off idle spool and the 2nd, larger turbo for the remainder of the rpm range....

    That would be bi-turbo I think. Twin turbo would imply turbos of the same size, which would both kick in at the same time, versus a bi-turbo setup with 2 different sizes. Not trying to be a jerk, just clarifying it up.

    Yeah that car is nuts. I wish I could see it on the track and see some more "official" tests.

    I would just use two step anti lag.. if I were building a Subie with a big enough turbo that lag would be a serious issue. A compound charged system with supercharger/turbo just seems awefully inefficient to me. Plus I would imagine it's a nightmare to tune. The last thing I need is a more complicated boost system.

    My VF34 implementation added a little more lag than I was used to on the EJ20 in my old WRX. I implemented the driver mod, and simply learned to drive it in its powerband.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see 20% on an old roots charger up top. It all depends on what you are going for via the compressor/pulley as zax has stated.

    Yeah, I thought about you while I was typing that.
    I might find a 2.0/18G to be quite driveable, if well-tuned...never experienced that.
