I just wish you could restore instantaneous throttle response by defeating the VSA. It seems to lose a tiny bit of the lag with VSA off, but it's still there and noticeable to me.
Here's a random question, then: I've never driven a car with a turbo/supercharger, but I have driven the TSX. If one were to add a turbo to the TSX (or another drive-by-wire car), does the fact that there is lag with the DBW compond the problem, or could the preexisting DBW lag help mask the wait for boost?
