    no turbo lag there as each turbo would kick in, in a certain rev band - in otherwords turbo power all the way through the rev range

    Take another look at the size of the turbo's, and that's per cylinder, so the flow through each is relatively small when compared to the flow required to get them up to speed I'm sure, therefore there will certainly be lag.

    Look at the tech sheet and see how high up the rev range the max torque is when compared to a normal aspirated big block. It's definately considered lag when looking at a big block and your torque is normally always down low, not at 5000rpm.
