Dead spot

What is with the dead spot at take off. I'm shy to pull out on a tight spot. It pulls hard after the turbo starts spooling up. Will a 4" exhaust help? It's an 06 2wd with 24k mileage.

Thanks, Mika

turbo lag, and you answered your own question kinda because the turbo needs to spool up before it really pulls. Nothin really eliminates it but I think prolly the best way to get rid of it is hold the brake and press on the gas and let boost build up then let go of the brake then there really is no lag

My intake helped, exhaust helped, (both very little though), my SCT helped the most but there is still a little bit of it there

The best way to eliminate lag is to roll into the throttle. It's not alot of fun, but it's really the only way to eliminate lag to the point that you don't even think it's there. Second to that is let it build up boost before you hit the throttle(as was already mentioned). Not what I would do, but there really isn't a lot of options out there, it's one of those things that it is what it is.
