checking new turbo ?

so i got my new turbo in and gave it a week before i got on it . i notice now there is definitely less lag but it doesnt seem to take off as quick . maybe i'm just not used to not having so much lag . before the new turbo if i punched it gettting on the highway i would have a pause the BAM ! the truck would go insane . i guess what i am asking is if this is normal .

Your post is confusing, do you have less or more lag? Did you go back with a stock turbo?

Check your intake tubes. Are there any oil leaks for the trubo?

boost levels are pretty close to the same and there are no oil leaks anywhere . i think its just me . i did another datalog with the new turbo and the boost levels at 2400 rpm were almost identical . i dont know if that actually tells you anything .
