Hey guys,<BR> I have a 96 volvo 850 turbo wagon. It has turbo lag, obviously, and I dont like it. This is probably one of those things that are impossible to fix, and I bet a manuel transmission would go a long way in fixing it. Im not gonna do that though. Anyway, how can I get a bit more off the line punch. Would changing the blow off valve or waste gate do much, will a chip co much for this, an exhaust, etc. I did add a air filter, but that was only marginal towards fixing the problem. It does make a cool noise though, hehe. Anyway, anyone gotten it so that when they launch the car you get a little wheel spin, or that sports car take off, rather than the granny take off until the turbo kicks in. I mean when Im at a red light, next to a r$ce Burner, and we floor it, and we are neck in neck until my turbo kicks in, it just doesnt look as good as when I can blow them away. I like its power once its going, I mean when Im on a track, or braking the law, and going in excess of 100 mph, its acceleration through there is decent, not great, but decent. Anyway, some help would be greatly appreciated.
