Fswerks does 92, 93, 94 and even race fuel if you wanted them to man. And in my opinion randy does the best tunes out there via my research

I already have 1 of Randy's tune's for 91 octane. He also has a 93 octane tune. All I have found alround my area is 92 octane fuel. I was asking who has 93 octane fuel for your 93 octane tune? I'm waiting on their header, flex, & a stealth muffler.

O sorry I misunderstood you. Tons of places here in east Texas have 93 octane. Any shell or Exxon has 93 octane and they both have very good gas. Even the Walmart here in Tyler has 93 which is where I've been recently getting gas because its 10 cents off a gallon right now(=

93 octane is premium gas down here. You get it at pretty much any gas station.

I know when I was running my CAI/Header/Exhaust the tune (same one you got) added about 20 whp and made a hell of a difference. You'll also notice *cough* on the track *cough* that the governor has been removed. The ATX will lose a larger percentage of power unless you have an aftermarket tranny that the MTX due to the torque converter

Here in Alaska I am only able to find 90oct, and yes that is premium. But also up here I only show average intake temp of about 105 while idling, 68-74 while cruising.

Have to disagree with You Bud.
My project budget build is starting to run pretty darn strong,even with the atx trans.
Just installed my tune from Tom and the Car is starting to be pretty quick.
Once the Nitrous is installed next month and the tune re adjusted I think its going to be very quick from light to light or at the track.
Its been a bit of money,but not a healthy sum to get it where its at now.
Hers a quick vid of where it is today,having just installed the tune.
Its set for 93 octane,but I still have the remains of 87 octane only in the tank.
Going to refill with 93 tomorrow.
I was not speeding in this video.

Tom tuned it and I cannot believe the difference it has made.

Pretty crazy,right?
Nitrous is getting installed next Month....I cant freakin wait!
