I have a thought (but I maybe totally wrong):

The "overboost" may be just a gimmick, maybe in reality, our car is "overboost" all the time where there is no time limit. I personally haven't ever feel a clear kick-in and cutoff of the overboost which makes me wonder if it does exist or not.

interesting comment. No it's not a gimmick.

put right foot to the floor (ALL the way to the floor!) for 5 seconds and hold on.... if no sensation is felt, see a doctor.

Full throttle coming out of a turn. Once the car is in a straight line you will noticeably feel an added surge of power. That's overboost.

Or, injudicious throttle application coming out of a turn with DSC off. Humbling...
