What are some good rules of thumb to use it without making my engine get all messed up? It seems very tempermental compared to the engine boosts on other planes.

Only switch it on under 100%.

Once on you can go above 100% and you can also switch it off at any revs.

Just power down to below 100% to switch it on and you will be OK. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif)

Engage it while your throttle is below 100%.
You wont ruin it that way.

Also check out the boost on the Bf-109E7Z... it's a GM1 boost.
On that one, there is altitude limit where you can engage it... I think it is 6000m (I'm not sure I haven't load up game in quite long time). If you engage GM1 on E7 below that altitude your engine gets screwed in no time. It's only a hi-alt boost. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The Ta152H has a double-boost system.

Above 10.000m it uses the GM-1 mixture, below that, it uses MW50.

In order to switch from MW50 to GM-1, you have to switch the boost off (climbing through 10.000) and then re-engage it. It automaticly activates GM-1.
You'd also better do the same, descending through 10.000 in order not to seize your engine.

Only select the boost below 100% - you can firewall the throttle afterwards!
