running higher octane, means the fuel is harder to ignite, so then you can run more timing(tune) to gain more power


the only useful tune really is the 93oct tune sinse the gain is minimal anyways... might as well go all the way.

good luck finding a place to put a "chip" in our cars...

when you get a TUNE it adds timing which when combined with higher octane fuel = better performance and a stronger powerband

i have a 93 tune but i can run 89 as long as i don't get on it too hard..

LOL. A buddy of mine actually bought one for his 08 Eclipse. He got it about 4 months ago and we still give him hell about it.

had to tell someone once that came into my parts store that he was an idiot and needs to go get his money back

he thought it would remove his speed limiter on his impala, cuz someone said he needed to get "chipped" to remove it

i wanted to slap him

lol i know its all work man i was just lettin you guys know what kind of car i have. I just wanted to know if it was necessary to run a higher octane. Since higher octane dosent do much for performance on our cars cuz the engine was made for regular. I was just wanted to know if i can buy a chip but not use the higher octane gasolina!

no there is no point in tuning your car without higher octane, no point in tuning period unless you have lots of mods

speed limiter is removed with a tune

well i plan on gettin exhaust, throttlebody, UDP, then chip. I just wanted to know how the higher octane worked. Its just that gas is expensive here in canada so thats kind of a concern for me

then don't modify your car if you're concerned about the price of gas, mileage will go down unless you keep your foot off the gas, and whats the fun in that?

and please stop saying chip...you cannot chip a ford pcm

Reg gas is no concern, Premium gas is its about 12 cents more. I do plan on modifying my car, i already got a cai, thats just the first. The flasher is my biggest concern as i stated earlier. But ill just go with the flow and if i buy one ill be broke for a little while haha

Well he called me cause he wanted me to come install it for him. So I got to his house and he got it out of the package. I just started laughing at him. I thought he had bought a actual chip for his car. Oh well never said he was the smartest friend I had.
