Default moving from cali to texas!

Hey guys, as the title of this post states, I'm moving to Texas in the beginning part of May and wondering if I would have trouble getting registered (emissions testing required?) because im FBO w/ FF. Also, tuned for california's 91 but texas got that good 93. Would running a little higher octane gas be dangerous? Thanks!

As long as you don't have a check engine light/code you should be fine.

If you’re pro tuned on 91 and switch to 93 then you could raise issues.

Depends where you go. West Texas and some of deep north (Lubbock ish) has 92 and 91. Every else closer to the coast is 93 due to elevation.

btw thank you for the replies. I will be moving to Austin. I'm going to ask my sister in law and see if they have 91. Hopefully do they and later on if I add any more mods, I'll retune for the 93 then.

Austin has smog tests, so as long as you have a cat you'll be fine.

Why would it matter if your tuned on 91 but put 93 in? if anything, you're going to get better knock control from the increased octane since you're used to putting in ****ty ACN91.

now if you are tuned on 93, and put ACN 91 in then you'd have an issue.

You'll be fine running 93. Not so good going from 93 to 91 but its only 2 octane points.

Slight chance you'll lose a couple hp until you get retuned on 93.

Save the money on a re-tune and just run the 93. You'll be fine.

its going to happen. They all say they wont, but they do anyway.

Colorado now has CARB emissions laws and you fail for having a tuned ECU.

NOOO!!! Too many Californians in Austin already! STAY AWAY!!! We has the COVIDs!!!

j/k Welcome. I'm here in Austin and we have 93, and even E85 at a few places(I run a mix in the Benz).

you'll be fine on 93, shouldn't be anything but a plus, I would think...
