General Turbo question

Not just for Focus' but mroe of a general question about turbos

I know of the different types of tubos and how some provide less lag than others due to their designs.

I was wondering is there any way to practically eliminate turbo lag for any turbo? Of course there'd always be a lag but reduce the lag to the point where it'll compete with superchargers in the low end instant speed while also maintaining the high end power as well.

Ball Bearings help spool as well as the size of the downpipe and intercooler piping all help to reduce lag. Also a better flowing head and intake manifold will help. Basically anything you can do to help air flow better will make your turbo spool quicker. A turbo for 4 cylinders that spools very fast and still has great power up top is the GT28RS.

If you could get your hands on a variable geometry turbo, that would work. I doubt they are available as an aftermarket application. You can find them in applications like Ford's 6.0L diesel application, where the van geometry is varied throughout the speed/load range to minimize lag and better match turbo performance for driver demand. With any variable system, there is a massive amount of calibration work needed for the specific application. Thus, it is difficult to make one as an aftermarket accessory.
