9 times out of 10 i turn it on and ruin my engine. I'm thinking this cr*p is HIGH alt. only say 5km and up. I've been using it as an emergency climb boost or a flat out escape juice. Can any experienced guy who knows his sh*t tell me the inside scoop on the do's and dont's of this stuff? 109 and Fw190 models plz.

turn it on with throttle @ 0% http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Turn it on as you start your engine and forget about it. Your throttle setting should be below 30% when you turn it on and won't use the MW50 until your throttle exceeds 100%.

Turning it on/off over the recommended throttle setting will fry your engine in no time.

Just as an added FYI, the GM-1 system is intended for high altitude use only, where as the MW-50 system is used for 'up-to' high altitude (it stops being effective at critical supercharger altitude, many planes somewhere around 6000m).

The Bf109Z uses GM-1 boosting, and should not (that means Can Not) be engaged below 6000m. The Ta-152 also uses GM-1 (it also has MW-50), but it has a more automated system (tied in with the Kommandergerat) and will simply not operate below critical altitude (possibly 8000m for Ta152? unsure).
