Default When Turbo Kicks In?

Does anyone know at what RPM the turbo (GT) kicks in?

Because our turbos are very small they spin up a lot quicker than most. I remember reading somewhere before I bought mine that full boost was available from about 2200RPM if I remember correctly. This means that you are getting SOME boost even lower as it spins up. You won't feel it as much until the engine gets up on the power curve but if your charge pipe ever blows off like mine did you will feel how dead the car feels without it.
