The turbo is not like Nitrous, or a button to push to go faster.

It's a permanent boost, like actually putting a turbo on a car. You will notice your "Acceleration" bar go up quite a bit when you install it.

The "Turbo" upgrade for your car - that you buy as an upgrade - is basically the game version of a real-world Turbo Charger, which means it will kick in and work on it's own, you don't trigger it.

When I was a punk uni student I got a great summer job replacing toilets in public housing flats that paid $28 an hour which was a LOT of money in 1985... Yeah we had to wear aweful hazmat suits and we if you did not drink a gazillion gallons of water you could have died, but anyway..

That year I took the hoopdie Ford Falcon XB Coupe that I had bought the year before and had it's V8 351 completely rebuilt, then dropped a grand for a Turbo Charger for it that basically massively boosted it's horsepower by forcing more fuel-air mixture for the engine...

The Turbo had an automatic switch that kicked it on as soon as the RPM hit a specific number though I knew people who had them that had a switch-enabled system but that is really not an efficient way to use them. Trying to use the turbo from a standing star is really pointless because you get a much greater benefit at the top end, not the bottom.

So yeah, just upgrade and be happy you now have a faster car!

The turbo is an upgrade for your car and all it does is increase the acceleration. You cannot trigger turbo, it just makes your car go faster.

$12500 for nothing. What a wast of money.

The Turbo is an upgrade, it is used automatically as appropriate depending on speed and conditions.

Something I noticed in free mode whenever you click down on l3n are three simultaneously you notice if you have the turbo add it to your upgrades it is celebrated a bit quicker when you're switching gears...I'm thinking this is a little Easter egg that GTA developers put in the game for those who might actually find it
