    Boostaholic's

    Hello and welcome to boostaholics 2011.
    I know this is difficult for a lot of people who are in denial so...

    I'll go first.

    My names Andrew and I'm a Boostaholic.
    I have been a boostaholic for over 10 years.

    I am making slow, but steady progress.
    I can now look at the clock on the wall and not expect it to speed up between 3 and 4 pm.
    I do not feel jealous anymore of the clothing in the washing machine when it hits the fast spin cycle.
    And I finally understand that quickly flicking the speed settings up and down on the wifes hair dryer is not "like a turbo nicorette patch"

    I will endevour during 2011 to be more tolerent to the lesser...sorry, other, people who own normally asper...(I'm not ready to say those words yet)... cars.
    And with patience I may even, one day, be able to accept that a rev range which dosn't induce total loss of traction half way through may, in some certain obscure moments, be ok.

    Although my new years resolution is to strap a ferris wheel size blower to a hover mower and get Q+B to sell it as a Sunday special

    Next?

    My name is Karl, and I'm a boostaholic.

    In 2011 I will try and refrain from making my dyson Hoover do a blow off valve noise when I turn it off and stand it up all in one fast motion.

    My name's Adam and I'm a boostaholic.

    In 2011 I'm going to try and not drive everywhere at 3.5k revs just to hear the blower whistling...

    My name is prawn and I'm a boostaholic.
    In 2011 I'm going to stop constantly speeding up and slowing down, just to hear it spool and dump. Apparently, this does not make for a comfy passenger ride!

    I'm also going to it a hybrid turbo to my track car, and get a stage 2 remap for more boost on my daily!

    Let's embrace the condition, not try to cure it

    My name is Welly, and I'm a boostaholic.

    I simply cannot live without boostahol.

    2011 bring me the opportunity to get a new high flow manifold (that works and everything), slap some WMI and a catch can on the S3, and then actually manage to finish the project I started several months ago.

    Following that, I plan to take it all apart again and the formulate a new plan....
