    In my experience with modern cars, its not just turbo cars that have lag. Every throttle by wire vehicle I've driven has some level of electronic throttle delay. On a turbo car its hard to tell how much of the lag is turbo related and how much is due to the rest of the engine electronics and mechanicals. I would bet the ECM and transmission have more part in the delay you're feeling than the turbo does. The CX9 is more responsive than many non-turbo vehicles I have driven.

    The only time I have noticed lag is when turning from one street to another while having a green light (IOW not from a stop). Otherwise I notice zero lag. For the record we use 93 octane fuel

    ^^ This. It's mostly (all?) electronic/by wire these days. There's is always throttle delay. In my experience the throttle by wire delay when you punch it is longer than any lag in the turbo.
