Volvo is combating turbo lag in an interesting way!
Turbo lag is one of those things that every car guy hates. Volvo has been leading the way in car safety and technology for a long time now so it’s no surprise that they came out with this. Turbo lag is tough you have to size the turbo right, too small and it spools too fast and doesn’t have a good top end. Too big and it spools too slow and has bad low-end power. One a small engine it makes it even harder because you don’t have a lot of excuses to spool it so you need to get innovative like this.
