I havnt long had this car but my turbo doesnt kick in until it reaches 5000rpm, rather high!! once it kicks in its like a rocket was just wondering if there was anything i could do possibly to reduce this turbo lag, or if this is normal. thanks

I didn't think the 182 had a turbo! the kick your feeling could be variable valve timing or switching to another cam

:iagree: I82's dont have a turbo, well not unless someone has been busy with spanners anyway. ;)

As above the kick is probably the VVT.

Just found this on a 182 forum - hope this helps

"Had a 182 a few years ago, and I thought it was a cracking car, had to sell it to put money towards a house. The power doesnt kick in until 5k though"
