Re: gas question

I would assume 87 if it hasnt been tuned or worked on if it is still the stock setup

Re: gas question

As long as its not tuned for higher octane or if your timing isn't advanced you can run 87 no problem.....when i bought my car the previous owner had the timing at 12 degrees and it needed 93 or it would ping.

Re: gas question

5.0's don't care at all, unless you have it modded or bumped timing...

Re: gas question

if its stock and not messed with (timming wise) you should be fine on regular 87. Just listen for detonation (marbles rolling around like sound in your upper intake area) then you can bump it up. It wont make ANY difference to run higher octane gas if the car isnt setup for it.

Yea, I'm wondering the same. My car has a cam and some other things, not sure if the timing is advanced or not. I might call the guy back and ask.

How aggressive is the cam? What other things? I personally would put a little higher octane in it until you find out what exactly is all under the hood, that why you can safer than sorry for like 5 extra bucks! Your timing isnt the only thing that determines what octane to use, so keep that in mind also!

I know timing isn't the only thing. I know what's done to the car but I'm not sure about the type of cam.
