In this case, faster is relative or in relation to using ****ty gas and not an actually increase in power or more than 148 hp.
Figured that. I'll keep using it just because it won't do any harm and feels just a little bit different. Since it's TT gas I doubt it's "crappy" but if it feels faster to me then what's the harm? :P
