I imagine it would be counter productive... The torque required to drive 2nd gear and achieve higher top speeds would be lost when the speedy started to advance its timing (AKA turbo).

just set turbo delay to a long time or stay off full throttle until 2nd gear is engaged

So you're saying Turbo would be like 3rd gear once you maxed out in 2nd before the Turbo mode kicks-in?
