What kind of engine behavior would they best represent?

Personally, I've been using 1G_Boost on Diesel vehicles because such engines, to my knowledge, have lots of low-end power.

I've also been using 2G_Boost on would-be turbo cars since the boost kicks in a little later.

However, I'm also wondering how other people use those tags.

Other potential definitions I've come up with go like this :

 

1G_Boost : The powerful boost at low speeds acts a lot like cylinder de-activation. Such systems disable up to half their cylinders, which would explain the drastic differences in acceleration.

 

2G_Boost : The milder boost in speed is more characteristic of an engine with a wide powerband. The extra grunt at low RPMs helps the vehicle launch while still being limited by the engine's peak output.

 

 

After extended testing, I find that 1G_Boost overrides 2G_Boost, as the vehicle is not any faster when climbing hills even if both are activated.
