Higher vis with boost?

When I use my engine boost, I get the distinct impression my visibility/detectability goes way up.  I feel like I just flipped on a light that sez:  "Hit me!  I'm right here!"   Does this happen?  Are you more visible to the enemy now? 

Thanks,

Nope. Engine boost consumables do not change detectability.

The things that will change your detect are firing main guns, AA firing, and fires. (firing AA guns, only increases detectabiliy from air; but all the details are in that wiki)

You can literally turn on your detection radius on the minimap and see what affects it. Speed boost does not.

Sure does. Move faster towards enemy = seen sooner. But doesn’t change detection radius.
