Here is a sentence from a drift race game's description:

If you want to feel the surge of a boost as you enter a corner, think of investing in a turbo.

I am not sure about the meaning of the phrase "surge of a boost" here. I know the lexical meaning of both "surge" and "boost", but they don't seem to fit here.

From the dictionary: "surge: a sudden movement forward", "Boost: an increase or improvement".

Here the context means that the boost is the boost in speed that you get from a turbo, and the increased speed causes the car to surge forward. This is not very well written, but this is the meaning that is intended.
