Read on here or another Macan site, can't find the post now. Someone suggested that boost on a 2022 gts is reduced until 1000 miles,anyone got any information on this?

I drive very gently for the first couple of thousand miles as I do currently plan to keep the car.
Used the boost for the first time with 2500 miles on and it went off like a scalded cat!!! Unbelievably quick car for what it is. Did have a good check if the mirrors first!!!!
Gen 3 GTS in primer with black spyders, inside completely covered in black cow that heats up with bright red seatbelts and stitching! No escape hatch or missile racks.......

Both V6’s do, it moves it to sport plus for 20 seconds. There is no “extra boost” or hike in power although it is very effective I agree. Used it a handful of times and it is a lot of fun 🤩

I think that froggy may be asking about turbo boost in general, rather than the Sport Response feature... 🤔

No worries, although I don’t know the answer, I’m afraid! :oops:

Might be worth checking with an OPC, or indy specialist? :geek:

All Macans with the sport chrono package have the sport response button.
