Default Drive by wire lag

Did a search for this and didn't find anything - I have a lag in my drive by wire throttle - I've been told two different things, and not sure what direction to take - some say its in the tune, others say its a problem with the throttle body
Anyone have any experience with this issue that could steer me in the right direction? - want to start driving the car and this is holding me back

You can tune out the lag in HPTuners. It is basically a matter of how much of a percentage of throttle is actuated when you first step on the pedal (it normally increases as you go through the range). It's kind of a safety and economy thing. Simply up whatever is present to 100, and bingo. Something else could of course be the issue, but this worked for me (with a truck throttle).

Give us a ring at the shop and we can see if we can help. Could bring the car by and we can check out what it looks like in the tune.
