I didn't even get a map for the 93oct, that would have also been another $200. It sucks about not having higher octane fuel but it is what it is...
Makes sense. No reason to pay for something you can't use. I guess I had just assumed since you swapped injectors and pump. You have a lot of headroom in your fuel system now.

Yes, I'm a little bitter because I spent so much money for a rather low number, but I can drive this car as hard as I want all day without any concerns of damage and that seems worth it to me.

I'd also be interested in seeing a log through Virtual Dyno or Airboy. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions. I'd be happy to run them if you'd like.
