So to get the turbo to spool up reasonably you have to go with a smaller turbo. Then that smaller turbo is limited on total power production. It's a catch 22. The U-turn single kit on the market today is both laggy and limited to around 700whp. It's more laggy than the 1100whp twins I have on my car. I really don't like superchargers but I'd get a Whipple or ECS kit before a U-turn single.
haha just so you know i run a rear mounted twin turbo kit there are ways to reduce lag even if you have piping like mine. With twin 72mm turbos i am fully spooled around 3600rpm right now on the street. and at the track i can get them fully spooled around 2700 rpm.

Technology and experience these days has reduced lag to where its not an issue, plus on when you daily drive a car... its nice to have a little lag. You dont want instant power as thats what causes accidents.
