Default torco and pdx question

I picked up an email protune from pdx a couple of months back. Actually, I got two maps, one for 90 oct and one for a 90 oct + torco mix. I finally got some torco and plan to give it a try. But, I didn't get any notes from pdx about how much torco per 14-15 gal tank. I remember seeing that some folks were using 1/2 can and some were using 1/3 can per tank.

I'll check with pdx next week, but in the meantime does anyone have any advice? Thanks.

check with PDX, they should have asked you how much torco you were planning to use and created the map for you based on that. I wouldn't run it until you know how much torco to add.

They didn't ask. What they asked was, do you want the torco map too, it's an extra 50$? I said yeah.

I'll check with pdx asap.

The short email that came with the maps explained which map was which, the 90 map boost target was 16.5psi and the torco map target was 18. That was all. I thought, hmm, there must be a "standard" torco mix that I don't know about.

Thanks kyle and 02redwagon, for the info.

from what i understand, it's 1/3 bottle of torco when you are about 1/4 tank of gas. mix the rest with 90 octane. all my maps (except my dyno race map) is based on this fuel mixture.
