    TS200 boost limitation 1st AND 2nd gear?

    Hello from Holland!

    In one of the reviews I've read about the TS200, they say it is also boost limited in 2nd gear. How does this work? As the Calibra only has 1st gear boost limitation... I would like to see my Astra also with this feature!

    Sorry, yes I mean the Astra F. In one of those reviews of a magazine it says boost limited in 1st and 2nd, so I wondered how did they do that!

    As far as I know, it is only limited in 1st.
    Do you have a link for this review??

    We have a few 200TS's in South Africa - Great cars!

    There is a switch on the gearbox to tell the ECU when the car is in 1st or reverse, and the ECU limits the boost for as long as the car is in 1st or reverse.
