Changing tune to premium gas.

Just a quick question, if i changed my cars computer to go from regular gas to premium, and that's it, will there be any benefit?

Will you be using a handheld like diablo sport, sct, bama? I know my diablo cane with three maps. One for 87,89,91. The 91 is whats meant for my "sports" tune and it does act a lot different than the 87 tune

one day i hope to have something pretty damn witty here

Yes, if you are light footed, you can actually save gas, but then more power is available if u need it and will of course use more gas the more heavy footed you are. I have the 91 octain on my 01 gt and got about 20mpg hwy with 3.73 gears and automatic tranni.
The downside is if you live in a place where its hard to find premium gas because you can no longer use anything less as that would cause engine damage from pinging.

Yes I'd be using and Scott x3 it doesn't have the preloaded to and it used so I have no custom tunes yet but I was noticing that you can change a few things like which gas it takes and a few other things
