Boost by gear

Simple question, has anyone successfully done it with a j-body. I was just curious because I know how terrible our ecu's are especially us LN2 guys.
My car def. doesn't have a need for it now but the turbo kit is nearly put together and I have plans to build an engine after college.
Thanks for any input.

If you count low load from wheel spin... Mine does it.

20 in second, 25-28 in third, 30+ in 4th

LOL

Our stock hardware can't do it. I'm sure there is an aftermarket boost controller that can do it; but getting the fueling right with the PCM would be an issue unless you're map tuned.

I am pretty sure Raven did it years ago on his turboed 3800 cav.

He hit it pretty solid. If you have a map based OS it would be possible. On Alpha-N it would not work to well.

This is what I figured.
