Post High Octane

This past weekend I dumped some octane booster in my scooby. O man. The throttle response is so much better. Its allot smoother though the whole power band. I haven't felt my timing held back at all.

You guys think running Octane boost all time is ok?

Dumping a can of octane boost into your car every fill-up will get quite expensive. There really is NO benefit of higher octane on a stock or near-stock motor. It was designed for 87 and won't care about higher. Butt dyno is not all that reliable.

I agree, the compression/lack of boost dosent nessisitate high octane gas. If you car has a few miles on it then it may have cleaned and lubricated some fuel system components for you. Also octane booster in every tank i can almost garentee you will fowl your spark plugs quick.
