I think you press the accelerator pedal ... ;)

New turbo's don't "kick" in .. they are more progressive to reduce the lag you had with the earlier types ..

In mine when I have the car in D mode, one can display a boost gauge which shows when the turbo is having an effect.

The turbo is too small and light and the engine designed to reduce lag. They don’t give a ‘kick’ like old 80s turbos did, you’ll only ever really get lag if you try and pull away at low rpm in 2nd gear, and wait while it picks up.

They’re designed to feel more like a larger engine. Try driving a 1.4 mito without a turbo and you’ll soon realise how much more grunt the turbo is adding.
