    Maybe a split second. The only difference I can feel is more power.

    Somebody else will have to chime in on that. I've never had a front mount. I had the stock ATA and then upgraded to the 205 WTA unit.

    I have a slight lag. I can't speak too a tmic, but my fmic I have maybe a half to a two second delay. I don't worry about that lag though, when the boost kicks in I forever about the lag.

    Not necessarily anything noticeable, but the reduction in heat soak is extremely noticeable.

    For me I have mixed feelings...

    For crisp throttle response - N/A
    For the shear excitement - Turbo

    I don't notice any lag at all. I also have a 24X9 FMIC with rear facing outlets. Which makes for much less charge pipe than most setups need.

    is that the same style as the SRT FMIC?

    as for me I prefer the boost. Correct me if im wrong but from my understanding the reason behind a turbo being created was to increse fuel economy.

    If I want cheap & quick hacker, I'd go for a turbo. Otherwise N/A motors is what does it for me.

    Turbos were originally conceived to assist airplanes where flying above a certain altitude wont sustain airflow enough to keep an engine going, so you NEED to have a turbo to forcefeed air up there. Thats my understanding anyway.

    N/A is for corners, turbos are for straights. Not that turbos can't corner, you just have to know your car REALLY well
    I really like the way aaawelder put it: "do not include yourself in this circuit"
