    Hi everyone

    Im just in the process of trying to estasblish what is causing the extended turbo lag i have.

    At the moment it kicks in at 2200-2400


    what should it be normally?
    The rest of the car is fine, i might start with the dv first as its £20 as well as chcking the hoses

    im quite sure it used to be before 2000rpm

    i have had a few issues in which ive been doing some testing to elimante things like exhuast, blowing sound but cant find owt, cleaned the maf, taken to a few garages, avoided stealers etc), serviced the lot

    On mine, boost threshold is slightly below 2k, but it doesn't make any meaningful boost until 2.2k ish.

    I think mine starts to produce boost around 1700rpm however you should be getting full boost by around 2200rpm.

    Your car sounds normal mate, recognisible boost at about 2200ish before and after remap (just more of it afterwards).

    I have a 2001 S3 and the boost comes just under 3000 RPM. I do have mine remapped with Revo SP2.
