is it me our does this car seem to have a good amount of turbo lag? would a tune get rid of some of this?
I can third that. When in normal drive mode and you floor it the car takes a second to think then downshifts. When in sport mode the car performs better.I'm not sure it's turbo lag (although there's a little).
I'm guessing you were driving an automatic? If so, I can second it has some lag in the normal driving mode. I need to try a premium in Track or Sport+ modes myself. I think that will help. Throttle response seems muted until you really get >50% of the pedal depressed and the auto has to think a bit before it decides to downshift, in my experience.
I have a manual and dont feel any of that..so there's probably a difference. with that being said my 13 WRX with manual had plenty of turbo lag! FORD still made a good system in my opinion.. I think the aftermarket is only going to make it even better..I can third that. When in normal drive mode and you floor it the car takes a second to think then downshifts. When in sport mode the car performs better.
In the lower rpms with a manual?? wow.. Dont know? I dont feel that at all. Like i said earlier drops off with stock tune in the upper but not that i noticed in the lower. I guess its night and day coming from my last turbo the WRX..I drove a Eco premium. The car was manual. Just felt like it had some lag in the low rpms. Mind you this is going to be my 1st turbo car so I'm not familar with how turbos work
Do you know if it was on sport mode or not? In anything but sport or track mode the throttle is hideously sluggish.I drove a Eco premium. The car was manual. Just felt like it had some lag in the low rpms. Mind you this is going to be my 1st turbo car so I'm not familar with how turbos work
I did not play with no modes so I'm assuming it was not on either of those. I'm coming from a heavy modded 350z NA. Only test drove the car for 10 minutes. Guess I'll have to test drive it again. Is the difference from sport mode and regular that much of a difference?
I dont think there should be any change in MPG between drive modes. I'm at 3,500 miles on my EB Premium and I flip from mode to mode all the time and dont see a difference. Biggest difference would just be that when you put it in sport/sport +/track mode you are probably looking to drive fast = lower mileageThere's a huge difference, IMO. Also a big difference in MPG..that I can live with though.
