This is a great question and a great problem to have as well. It's always better to have boost come in too fast rather than too slow. But since that may not be for everybody we built in a feature that allows for the initial vane position to be manually set by the user. By adjusting the initial vane position one can control how fast boost comes in. For example having the vanes set at zero (initial position of fully closed) then you will have the fastest boost response. Set the initial vane position to fully open and you will have performance that would be more comparable to a conventional turbo. With that said the vanes can also be set anywhere in between.

Basically you have the ability to dial-in the turbine geometry to your specific driving style with a simple turn of a wrench.
