How does Anti-lag work?

You know that feeling when you're walking through Tesco's car park at night and you see some flames in the distance. You don't think much of it until you are greeted by a scene from Saving Private Ryan. You think thousands of people are machine gunning you . and you hit the deck. But wait… you have no holes in you (except for the normal ones)… what happened? ANTI-LAG.

I know the term anti-lag and I often pretend to nod along when my mechanical friends talk about turbos, but I don't really know how they work, so I searched the internet to find out.

The best info video I could find was by Donut Media, who are pretty awesome at everything to be honest. They go through what anti-lag is in general and through the different types.

Does your car have anti-lag? Have you learnt anything from the video? Let me know in the comments.

  • I personally hate the sound of antilag. The popping and bouncing of the revs sound like shit
