I really shouldn’t say this

But I think I have worked out when the turbo charger kicks in when I am in top gear.

I was coming back from the airport and in a bit of a hurry to get home and so just ‘pepped it up a little’. Only to find that as fast as I was going there was a little Peugeot going even faster, so I pushed a little more and at something like 115 the turbo charger kicked in, the torque went up and the car started to accelerate. A lot.

Which wouldn’t have been so bad if I was still in the Netherlands and the units of measure where km/h. Unfortunately, I was in the UK and really began to wonder just how fast I really want to go in my car. Which now probably deserves a picture
