Lightbulb Octane Booster?

I've heard good and bad. I have some Outlaw ostane booster in right now and plan on using it for race day at PR this Sunday. I can't really tell the difference on the street, so hopefully I'll see it in the numbers on Sunday.

Have you found some means to advance your spark or increase your compression? If not, you just waisted your money.

The best way to do octane booster on a stock car is to add it to a tank of fuel....burn that tank down ~1/2 and then re-fill and re-boost and reset the ECU....then drive that tank to ~1/2 and re-boost and have at it....

Yeah without the timing being advanced you gain nothing but an engine that runs a little warmer. But if your are on the edge with timing it will help

The ECU will advance timing(not pull timing) if higher octane is used.....THAT will help power.

I have 'played' with this for a long time.....and a stock car will 'use' ~95-96 octane and make power where 93 will make it pull timing....if ya know how to do it...I do.
