The 2.0 SIDI Turbo'd Ecotec is WORLDS more advanced and powerful then the SC'd one. Turbos don't have to be laggy at all, my GTI will rip them free at any part of the rev range if you've spent some time and gotten used to the powerband relative to the pedal.
If this SS was out 4 months ago, I would've actually considered it. I didn't even bother with the SC.
As for power potential, The motor is ridiculously capped by the ECU. I'm still trying to get my dad to trade in the N/A for the Turbo..
