Hey guys and gals,
What is the deal with my auto 9-3? Maybe someone can tell me if this is related to engine management or if it is even fixable at all.
Seems as though I can fly around town just fine getting in the boost with my hair in the wind. But when it comes to that initial acceleration, there is a little hesitant bogging and then a second and a half later, vrroom, it all opens up.

I guess what I am getting at is, am I looking at some future modifications such as larger intake, downpipe, and that sort of thing? Or is it more along the lines of a crusty hose giving me a second of regret for pulling infront of that car, when I know Ill have to power to boogie off one second later.

My 9-3 is the only one I've ever known so I have no comparision. It is a fun car but if I could change one thing, that would be it for right now. It could be, that this is just how it drives and the turbo has to spool up causing the acceleration to fall behind in WOT.
