What increases turbo lag?
Turbo lag is affected by a number of different factors, including turbo size relative to engine size, the state of tuning of the engine, the inertia of the turbo’s rotating group, turbine efficiency, intake plumbing losses, and exhaust backpressure.
How long does turbo lag last?
In short, turbo lag is the delay between pressing the accelerator and feeling the turbo kick in. This usually takes about 1 second in newer cars.
How do I know when my turbo kicks in?
The turbo is powered by exhaust. Press gas pedal, exhaust is generated, turbo starts to spin, more air and fuel is pushed into the engine, power increases. This starts to happen right off idle and you can feel it when starting from a stop. Press the pedal and a second or two later you feel the turbo kick in.

Do Volvos have turbo lag?
Turbo lag, by definition, can’t be eliminated entirely, but Volvo is working hard to minimize it. Volvo currently only offers four-cylinder engines in its cars, but in order to match six-cylinder power, it’s turned to turbochargers.
Why is my Volvo S60 engine overheating?
The engine is misfiring regularly, and you are using a lot more fuel than usual. The engine may also be overheating. If your S60 was built between 2013 and 2016, then it’s likely that the plastic inlet manifold on the engine has melted or deformed.
Do Volvos have 6-cylinder engines?
Volvo currently only offers four-cylinder engines in its cars, but in order to match six-cylinder power, it’s turned to turbochargers. Using turbos to get six-cylinder numbers from an inline-four can often lead to significant turbo lag, but Volvo has developed some clever solutions.
What are the problems with a Chevy S60?
Problem: If you are having performance problems with your S60, the ETM (Electronic Throttle Module) is known to get blocked by a carbon build up. The MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor also gets a build up. Poor engine idling, bad starting and lack of power/acceleration are all symptoms of these issues.
