Turbo Question

So I read somewhere that you can program a turbo to only provide boost at a certain RPM. Can anyone confirm this?

Also, if I wanted to have a turbo so I could have boost when I wanted it but not when I'm putt-putting to work and back, what RPM range would you experts suggest? BTW I have a v6.

Any product suggestions for this?

Thanks!

You could get a boost controller but that is not really going to made to bleed all the boost out of the system. You best bet would be to just drive normal and shift before the turbo spools and keep it out of boost.

It depends on how you drive. If you putt putt around then it wouldn't be building boost because you aren't driving it aggressive enough to make boost. That's what I love about my twin turbo, I can drive it normally when I want to, then just drive it more aggressive and instant boost. Rent a turbo car for the day and you will understand what I mean...
