Agreed. Boosted mine 5 months after taking ownership.


I often contemplate what it would be like stock...

i've often thought about going and test driving one just to see. don't want to deal with the dealership hassle, though. i'll just wait till someone wants a stock car tuned.

Haha same here. Everything went so fast I don't even know what it's like to drive a stock one. The car only had 300 miles on it and it was already on a lift being tore apart from the ground up.

I was excited about my car when I bought it.

Till I drove it and remembered how slow the demo was.

Boost has been an absolute riot, but driving off the lot with something I knew was so significant was even better. Great question.
