Turbo Booster has arrived.

Gotcha. My little girl is finally big enough for the next type of car seat. I just thought you all would get a kick out of the name.

Nice, what'd you use for airbag deactivation? Porsche bar or the eBay switch thing from the UK?

Good one! Next time you actually get your turbo, I won't look at your photos.

I wish she was older. She would love to ride top down.

She will love it (who doesn't)! My daughter loved every minute of the top down ride last year and thinks the 986 is a toy instead of transportation tool. We can't wait for the spring to arrive!

If you're going to run boost like that, have you considered meth injection?
