Yup safe. Why? Because your motor is holding timing back on the 93 octane already, on the edge of detonation. With 100 octane you will pick up more timing because you simply are not going to detonate. It wont be any more or less safe than pump, because the ECU is still controlling things exactly as it would on 93, but with the higher octane it will give you more timing. It gives as much as it can, and no more. Be it 93 octane, 94, 95 or 100, its doing the same thing. Its just a matter of how MUCH of the same thing.


I added the injector section, and will be adding a turbo choice section in a bit.

"you can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think."
or is it

?

good thread just the same.
or you can dress them up but can't take them out ?

Great! Loving the write-ups on this forum, definitely lots of helpful, objective information for noobs like me haha.

Had no idea about 87 octane actually damaging the engine.

Are Subies picky about what kind of Cai they have? My setup on my 03 wrx is a down pipe up pipe exhaust and Cai but it's running really rich and I don't know why I even spent $700 on a Cobb ap and it hasn't helped

Excellent post. If I may, I'll threadjack it with an intro for newcomers onto how to ask questions in the first place...
