All right, so this is the first new car I've had in 15 years.
I'm used to a 2.5 L 4-cylinder. I have no idea about driving turbo and it's taking a while to get used to it. It seems like even if I'm in Turbo and first gear without it floored to the max at it half throttle or the turbo kicks in once I switch in the second gear there's a lag before the turbo kicks in again same the third gear same fourth gear. How do I balance the turbo to wear it 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th gear without it being wide open throttle?
It's kind of driving me crazy. I'm not used to driving anything turbo though.

Keep it above 3500 RPM all the time! ;)

Seriously, turbo lag is a thing.

FWIW, I didn't really notice it when the car was stock. But I've added the Lap3 ECU and with the boost turned way up, I really feel it kick in when in 3rd gear.
