In my experience from listening to the whistle boost varies more with throttle that speed. I can do 90 mph downhill with no boost, and 60 uphill on full. Mine whistles at under 1.5K when setting off and short shifting.

What are those issues please ?

Not doubting but wondering as I don't have an SG or similar yet, how does it go into vacuum with no throttle ?

The Civic boosts from very low revs so avoiding it entirely would be tricky.
