In my dad's turbo'd 80 it takes a little over a second for the turbo to fully spool up when you mash the pedal - you get used to it. On the trail I could see, on delicate obstacles where you need precise throttle response, that it could be a detriment, but he's rolling on 33s with no lift and has topped out at 18mpg doing mostly commuter-type driving, but not stop and go. When I drive it though, I just can't help but put my foot in it I get probably closer to 13 or 14.

Romer - reffug's didn't happen to be white and lifted did it?
