2.0L turbo putting 350 hp sounds like significant turbo lag.....from an OEM perspective that is (remember OEM's have to cater for the odd grocery mom who might buy one and end up being shocked when the power band goes from lag to boost).

They may end up using a 2.5L or one of their slightly bigger engines IMHO.
Your thinking like a tuner, using off the shelf parts. Mercedes/AMG have engineers to design break though technologies from the ground up. A major difference.
