I'm assuming you or your installer preformed the swap on a lift. I guess I'm starting to gear up for a turbo swap and figuring out what kind of time frame. It looks like this is a weekend job for sure.
I did not do any standing start launches until now. I also have a manual transmission, so I don't know what is brake boost Yes the pull is more linear but I did not pay any significant attention to the midrange until now, I can probably improve things a bit.

It was done on a lift and it's a weekend job for sure (start Friday night if you are not experienced ) Seeing all the process (I was there the whole time), I think it can also be done in like 16-18 hours of continuous work (with 2 short lunch breaks) from an experienced mechanic.
