Hi, my name is Shawn, I'm 17, and I am a boost addict. I became very interested in supercharged cars at the age of 13. This is when we put a pulley on the SSEi and I realized the ease of modifications. So at 14 when my dad got the GTP I was addicted. Then after he drove it for about 9 months, the mod bug really hit and it started going really fast really quick. Then my dad thought, well maybe I should get a beater, the '90 Turbo GP, thats where the turbo'* came in and after doing some work to that car and getting it running properly and getting a chip on it, I was in love. At this point I was almost 16, and forced induction was just awesome. I was looking around for a car at this point and really wanted a Fiero and was having some bad luck finding exactly what I wanted, and while browsing through the auto trader I came accross this Turbo GP STE and went and looked at it and I was already in love with the damn thing. Then the mods came and I realized how easy it is to make turbo cars fast, and at this same time my dads GTP is running low 12'*, and I'm thinking, "damn...boost is awesome." So then I fry a tranny in the STE, so I get it fixed and it goes again, so I finally get my hands on my Lumina which is also Turboed and I'm modding away at that. The STE gets a tranny swap starting next week so I'll have two turbo 3.1'* at the age of 17, and I have access to an SSEi, GTP, Turbo GP, and Supercharged MC SS, all of which run AT LEAST 14'*; 1, maybe two are good for 13'*; and one good for high 11'* with traction. There is no way its safe for me to have access to all this.
I don't have an SSEi, I just thought I would share my story about forced induction. Its starting to become an obsession, its actually almost getting out of hand. All my classmates in my Auto Technology class call me "Turbo."
