    Default Turbo - When does it happen?

    Howdie Folks,

    I gotta question for ya's...

    I have just bought a lovely 2.0 Turbo Vectra (06 plate). I am just wondering when exactly the turbo kicks in?

    Many thanks
    Aidi

    I'm not sure when it spools up, but I'd say it is around 2000rpm as peak torque comes in at 2500rpm. It's virtually lag free so you never notice it coming on the boost.

    Turbo will be spinning under 2000rpm, but will be at full boost at around 2500. Peak torque is around 2900rpm.

    Amazingly you can also hear the turbo in the 3.0 V6 CDTI
    At about 30mph, in 3rd gear and lift the revs slowly through the range!
    Great late at night on an empty straight road, and even better with hedges, buildings on both sides, or a tunnel!

    Thanks for all the comments. I will go drive with the window down and listen out for the Turbo.

    I did like the last comment... I have only had the car a week, so i am sure i will notice the Turbo/Fuel gauge effect!

    Cheers
