Turbos have better torque than NA, but there is a night and day difference in terms of throttle response. For diesels I just do a "no lift" shift, i.e. just keep you foot slightly on the gas rather than taking it off completely.
For now everything is stock but we are working on swapping in an AZ6 (Lexus IS200) gearbox This I hope will help a lot since the ratios aren't anywhere near great stock. This and my stock 20V blacktop will be a lot of fun I hope
