thats because its not a centrifugal supercharger...99.99% of superchargers have no lag is power instantly
ya the corrado G60(supercharged 1.8 8V SOHC) is the base model and are crap stock...but either have to rebuild the supercharger to stage 4 or replace it with a twin screw type or else replace them every 10,000miles just about...they are very poor designed superchargers...the Corrado VR6's are much more fun if you are going light mods
i had a corrado supercharger on the scirocco for a while but i just wasnt impressed and it raised my oil pressure way too much so im saving for the bahn brenner twin screw charger...good for about 20PSI on demand with NO lag...
point being...corrados are pretty...but not much more than a good car to get parts off of for a A1 rabbit, scirocco, cabriolet or A2 Golf, GTi, or jetta...they are just too heavy of a FWD car to do much with...FWD sucks unless you keep it light..
