With all this talk about spool up and lost torque down low I think that is just what this car needs. I'd sacrifice some lag for some brute power on the top end. It may also give us the chance to actually hook the tires.
The torque down low is necessary for 4 wheeling and your grandpas Ford taurus
Best thing we could have is a shift in the power-band. I'm not saying 10 second turbo lag like your Evo 9's on gt35 but somewhere in the middle.
