Doubt that there's a reason for that oil yah think its to thick at start up or whatever but most of us drive our cars pretty hard. I think you should tell all the people that are running 8s,9s,10s that it's a bad oil for daily driven cars. Since a lot of them are daily driven. Just because you think you've read up on everything doesn't mean it's true.

Yep, we're here to visit on our way to Ft Bliss. We leave Sunday. I wish I could have made the meet last night but we couldn't get out of ft. Rucker until 930. That was a really long drive

Hey guys just curious if any of u can give me some advice about the accessport I just got. Im going t install my intake tonight and the accessport but I dont know what map to download. Thr place I bought it from said to do the stage 1 91 octane Mao first and not do the 93 cause if I get a bad tank of gas it could mess up my car.. What should I do? I always put 93 from Exxon.

it won't hurt to do the 91 octane map first. After driving around a bit switch to the 93 octane.

What's up guys?

I have lurked around here for a bit and finally decided to say "hey".

I want to do some logging on my AP, but really dont want to have to do it on the freeway. Lets face it, its not me driving that speed that concernes me, its the morons around here who refuse to pay attention while they drive.

Is there anywhere in town thats a long straightaway, prefereably copless, and no people around? West side of town preferred..

Yes. Running 93 on a 91 map gives you increased knock resistance. There is only a 5 HP difference between the two.

Doubt it. Fill up with some fuel at a gas station you trust and go home put the intake on reflash it and drive around

When I ran 91 in Cali made 320 switch to 93 made 350 so big difference in gas. Maybe subies don't pick up that much power from gas.

You'll be fine running 93 on 91map.
