Fellas, GOD created "lag" to give V8's a chance

IMHO, I think lag is overrated, especially if you've fairly accurately matched the turbo to the engine, for it's intended purposes. The "spool-up"/response you can get from modern day turbo's is amazing. I'm running a GT35R ball bearing turbo on my 3.3 and lag is not an issue (to me). Plant my foot and I get neck snapping acceleration "almost" instantaneously.

Had I gone a slightly smaller GT30R, I really think lag would be eliminated completely.
