    if you don't know what it is, how do you know you don't want it?


    If you don't want turbo lag, you won't make any power. end of story.

    OK since no one else is helping you, i will. Turbo lag is caused byt the time it takes for the exhaust coming out of the engine to start turning the turbo turbines past a speed that will start creating boost, ie actually forcing more air into the engine. The bigger turbo you install, the more power you will get out of your setup (to a point and assuming it is tuned/set upo correctly) but the problem is, the bigger turbo you put on, the longer it will take the turbo to spool up and begin creating boost. So ideally a happy medium is in order: some lag, but not a terrible amount--get a medium sized turbo. Im done for now. search around for more answers.
