Nope... no problems there once the boost comes up to full. When you're pulling hard at the top of 1st and then you shift to 2nd, RPMS are at around 2800? 2900? Just under where boost comes in.

So by lenghtening 1st gear a tad, once you hit top of 1st, and shift to 2nd, 2nd will be at around 3100-3200 rpms... resulting in quicker spool and better turbo response. 1st gear acelleration will hardly be affected and 0-60 times should be better because now there's hardly any lag in the 1-2 shift.

Bring it in and I'll just do an 'update-backdate' to the gears that change. I think 5th was revised to keep the same overall final drive ratios.

Won't that increase turbo lag and make the car slower off-line?

If anything the need to lower 2nd, but of course I know they
won't so as not to reduce the 0-60/62 times.

Lengthen 1st? That's just weird.
