Well, first of all it's _second_ gear and feather the brakes on a WR engine,
not fourth or fifth. The engine should be at 5000rpm, throttle fully open. No
more than ten seconds, mind. I assume the throttle cable's tight.
Secondly - lots and lots will know what I'm going to say next - the _first_
thing to check in low boost analysis is the physical state of the turbo. Pull
the turbo --> intercooler hose at the intercooler and and have a grope inside.
