Depends on the application. There's zero lag in the K03 on the FoST, though it dies out up top.

And no, definitely not related to the DCT at all. Many people drove my Mk3 and they all agreed that I had a unicorn amongst the general population. I was pretty firm and decisive with the throttle though.

Edit... I see dyn answered just before me, and he mentions the intake is most likely the cause. Thanks for the info :-)
in my experience with a turbo you have the power as low as 1500 rpm where as a NA engine doesn't get it until over 4000rpm usually. that's how my previous car was anyway, a turbo mini cooper s.

Aren't the mini's supercharged and not turbocharged? If so, then superchargers are normally belt driven which means they are better for low down power than turbo chargers.

Agreed, the DCT is actually very quick to get going, especially with an upgraded rear motor mount... and even with stock flash, upshifts quickly.

they were supercharged until the 2007 model. from 2007 to now they are turbo charged. I had a 2007 R56 mini cooper S. it had a turbo 1.6L engine.

Ah, got ya... I know I'd prefer to be running clean but don't blame you at all if you knew what you did would help with a major problem... anyway, was just curious.
