Maybe you're referring to turbo lag from the FMIC? Is the turbo stock? Any other mods you know of?

I'd suggest finding out who tuned it and talking to them. Or find another tuner and have them take a look at the map. This will be difficult to diagnose over the internet especially since there are no CELs.

I would ditch the FMIC and go with a TMIC for the turbo you are running. You will be much happier. Then of course the tune will net you your best gains and make the most power under the curve. You can always check out or TMIC im running a deal on it right now.

1. Fill out http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/usercp.php?
2. Visit your local forum here and talk to locals about trusted shops/tuners in your area.
3. Drive to item 2 and have an experienced professional look it over as we cannot diagnose cancer nor car troubles effectively over the internet.
4. Next time DO NOT buy a car without knowing 10000% of the modifications.
