A spooled take off is what you do in a manual. You push the clutch in and lay into the throttle to spool the turbo so there isnt any lag in building boost.

A boosted take off is in an Auto, you hold the brake and push the throttle to create boost, to prevent turbo lag and a faster take off.

I agree on the auto trany, but I disagree with the manual boost launch.
When you boost launch in a manual, you push the clutch in to where you get to the sweet spot, put your foot side ways hold bake in too. Your right foot on the gas. The reason you hold the brake too is because the turbo needs a load. It's hard to explain but on my six speed, I will get a better launch with the brake in too. Just my opinion.

You can do that, but you gotta get a lot of practice.
