GronkDaSlayer I'm pretty close to Laguna.

Since it's just a track day, the car should be fine. I would feel a little better with a baffled oil pan or something similar and a fuel surge tank but I'm not going to push it too hard anyway. Especially since I've been driving RWD cars for the past few years.

I'll try to go to Sears Point later this year since it's my favorite track. I love Laguna but Sears is better in my opinion. Matter of taste I guess :)

okaythen just call your local dealers see if they can install it. and ask them if they had install it before you dont' want to be the 1st one.

yeah a bumper that you can't get it before the track day. so you are near Laguna? lucky you. Does our car need oil cooler or any mods to race at a track like that? or it's all set to go?

GronkDaSlayer Just received the HUGE box yesterday.

Then this morning I registered with Ford Racing so that they can send the calibration tool. Next week I'll go check if my local dealer can install that thing for me.

I'm going to have to be patient because I can't get the stuff installed until after my track day at Laguna Seca

Anyway, once everything is done I'll put an update in here.

Only have 91 around here. Matter of fact the choice is: 87, 89, 91.
There is one 79 station in SJ that provides 100 Octane but that's a little overkill and the kit isn't tuned for that.

No, that's the standard measurement for the USA. AKI= Anti Knock Index, which as stated on most if not every gasoline pump I've come across in this country is the average of the Research Octane Number (RON) and the Motor Octane number (MON), the two conflicting tests that result in wildly different octane ratings.

The RON octane number is used as the headline octane number in Europe. In testing the result is 8-10 points higher than the MON figure for the same fuel.

Therefore the AKI figure is 4-5 points lower than the RON numbers advertised in Europe.

AKI= (RON+MON)/2

GronkDaSlayer You would think that running 87 would make the system run rich but most likely pinging would occur. I'm not going to risk that and I'll keep putting 91 in that thing.
Should receive it tomorrow :)

The warranty is the least of my concerns to be honest and I'd rather have the upgrade not fail at all rather than have it failed and covered.

Well even ignoring the warranty concern a stock car can run 87 octane safely, but the tune is not recommended to run anything less than premium fuel (91 octane+), which indicates that it may not be able to adjust for lower octane fuel safely.

A stock car will pull timing on 87 octane, but you can not get away with it on the more aggressive calibration.

warranty will cover up to 5k $ from FRPP, limited to powertrain parts only up to 36k/3 years.

from what I have read it's pretty safe, ecu will pull the timing if you put in 87 by accident or got a bad tank of gas. so far no one got problem with it.

Premium Fuel Requirement: Customers who purchase power upgrade packs, cold air kits with calibration, TracKey/Track Cal engine calibrations, or superchargers are required to use 91-octane or higher fuels at all times. Any failures associated with the non-use of premium 91-octane fuel will be ineligible for warranty repair.
