2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 Sport First DriveMr. Guido Vent in charge of gas engine development on smaller Mercedes vehicles, tells us that there is an unadvertised overboost effect during kickdown with one's foot to the floor, which results in roughly 13 more hp and 15 more lb-ft of torque for brief bursts.
Do you think there is any truth to this? Kickdown with foot to the floor? So I am guessing when you slam it to the ground it raises boost momentarily for more power? Does anything else think that is awesome.
