Exclamation Just how addictive is BOOST????

I was out driving yesterday evening, just taking it easy since I'm waiting on my J&S to come back again..

I'm staying in low boost and I'm thinking "This sucks... I cant wait to hit some good boost".... almost like I needed it!!!

Then I realize.. even with me babying it I'm STILL hitting 6-8psi which is as much as alot of guys see at max boost.

Thats when I realized "I'm a BOOSTAHOLIC!!!!!"

Now I know how the poor JRSC guys must feel... only getting a taste of boost and then craving more.....

I'd say im a torque-aholic, the more the better. Feeling like you're getting smacked in the rear by a mack truck is one of the simpler pleasures in life. Plus having the ability to make your girlfriend cry in shear terror is fantastic. The real fun starts at around 25psi on a 2.0L

If your willing to keep your car after 3 accidents, have a SC, and then go Turbo, and THEN! Turbo a japanese car....I say I'm addicted to boost also.
