When does Sti bug come on boost?

Hi Guys,

Ive seen a bug eye sti v7 jdm, x reg so its the first of the bug eyes, that I quite like the look of, I have phoned the guy, I asked how the car boosts, he siad the car really takes off at about 4k revs, and then again higher up the rev range when valve timing comes in awell.

I know nothing about the bug sti's, but does this sound normal?

Thanks

From what im led to believe from a reliable source the vvt heads on an sti mean after a remap you can bring boost in around 500rpm earlier than on a wrx without the vvc heads, so remapped they are a lot better than a wrx. As prev stated sounds standard as it is but a remap will improve it no end
