My personal car will hit full boost in 1st gear with the 3LDZ or the K27-7200 but some cars will not. It depends on what mods have been done.
If your engine is stock 1st gear is tall, but if even slightly modified 1st gear is just right. My enigine currently is 930S spec and I find 1st gear perfect. That is with the 3LDZ. The next test wil be with headers and a K27 shooting for 400whp. At that level 1st gear is useless and goes so quick that it may not hit 1.0bar before grabbing 2nd. You certainly won't be able to watch the boost gage to see.
