boosted launch means hold brakes and hit throttle to build boost. I build to about 15psi. Be carefull though depending on tire pressures it can lead to wheel hop.

Also with your manual doing that can be very difficult

Yes in 4x4! I boost to about 17psi in mine. Its really going to depend on your setup though. I'm running no lift and smaller tires (33x12.5x17's). Mine bites real good with this setup.

boosted launchin with a manwel is going to be hard, you have to get all three peddles going at once, and assuming your on a stock clutch, its really not meant for that. if you can load the engine down a little before you launch that would be good, a line lock would be perfect for you ....

on an obs truck it might work, but superduty park brakes arent really known for there holding power since they are about 1/3 the size of the old drums on an obs truck, might be something to try... not at the track your first time LOL. THree peddling is super hard but with some practice ive seen dudes do it better than others with an auto.

Yup if you can do that, without learching forward you should be good, be advised though a stock clutch cant handle a ton of that.
