SCT Tune - Works with 87 octane?

How does the SCT tune work in terms of octane?

Will the tune work with all octane levels or do you install a specific tune for a specific octane rating?

Is it worth doing on 87 octane?

And are all octane levels included in the tuner/pendant so they can be switched by the user?

Generally satisfied with my 2012 focus, just a little extra torque in the midrange would knock it out of the park.

SCT isn't a tune, it creates the ability to tune, So Tom or another local tuner can create a tune for your car, so it can be made to work with 87

Tom, for the case of my tune, is it safe to use 87 octane at all still? Will the ECU re-calibrate appropriately?

That might be a thing to do on roadtrips where I might save $20 over the course of the trip running 20% less expensive fuel burning away on cruise control.

I'll email you when I get a wild hair about it. ;)
