what is this turbo lag everyone speaks of? on a street car there is not REALLY noticeable lag b/c hello, it IS a STREET car after all.
Turbo lag is the waiting time between the turbo starting to make boost and turbo reaching full boost. On the new gen WRX Sti, full boost can come on at 4000+ rpm. But this is all dependant on how you look at it. I would guess this figure was obtained from a standing start, 1st gear.

In 3rd or 4th gears for instance, full boost could be reached quicker because of more load.

Please explain your "no noticeable lag on a street" theory? I would have thought it was most noticeable on a street, less noticeable on a track?
