Turbo Lag

I know this has been brought up before, but I haven't posted in a long time so...I'll just ask again.

How can I get rid of the "slow as hell" turbo lag, off the line lack of power? I have the Edge programmer, turbo back big exhaust RBP, and AFE stage II intake. The truck is fast but a slug off the line until the turbo gets going.
Any advice, or do I just live with it.?

you can always hold the brake and bring the rpms up to build boost on take off. Or if you want to spend some money you can upgrade to the turbonetics or garret ball bearing turbo.

I have a turbonetics unit and that sucker spools 10X faster than the stock pos.
