That's because there's not enough load on the engine to reach full boost earlier in first gear. A better test is in 2nd gear.

What is the most cost effective upgrade for around the 500 hp mark?
The 930 box has taller gearing for more top end speed, but the G50 will get up and go quicker. The G50 is a very tough g'box too, which can easily handle 500+. Mine has handled years of abuse, and it's a Carrera G50, not the G50/50
