I'm using 91 octane tune on my daily driver. But only because where I'm at we don't have 93. If I could id go 93.

Probably okay, but checking anyway... If you tune w/91, can you use 93 octane? No 91 around where I always get gas.

It shouldnt be any different then tuning for 87 and putting 91 in. I had to tune my car to 87 one time (stuck out in the middle of nowhere on a road trip and it was the only gas around) So I ran a tank of 91 before retuning it to 91. But as I've never had 93 I could be wrong.

Re: DD tune

I ran a 93 tune, most of the improvement was on top end, retuned to 91 race, no real difference. runs great on the street, good mileage, runs 12.7 on street tires. If you do tune for 91 it is a waste to use 93, running the 93 lets you run more advance. If you race alot i would get 100+ race fuel, and tune for race day only, that will make a difference worth the extra money.

I'm worried about occasional knocking on a 93 race tune. Have you had that? Sounds like the 91 tune isn't much diff than the 87 tune.

Re: DD tune

if you can get bad gas in your area then 91 may give you a little wiggle room, but if you are not WOT and you get slightly bad gas just dont go WOT and you will probably be just fine.

its also about timing, cut it back from peak a bit for DD duty

Late model restoration told me it wouldn't matter if I was out somewhere and couldn't find 93. I haven't tried it tho.

Never had knock, i do not let my fuel get much below 1/2 so if i get some bad gas it gets mixed. There is more difference between 87 and 91 tune, than a 91 to 93

That's good to know cause being a DD, I might stay clear of the 93 tune. I've been thinking about getting ECU tune switch (don't know the real name) so you can switch between 2 tunes easily. But then again, I always dump 93 octane in my car so there's that.

Maybe I'm just overly worried about it. Can you hear detonation on the cars pretty easily?

I have had the same issue with the 93 tune, not so much a knock but more like a ping especially when getting on the throttle between shifts, slight ping them it clears. I too don't have 93 where I live only 92. What worked for me was Lucas oil octane boost, it stops the problem but is pretty pricey when you have to buy a bottle on every fill up. I since have changed my tune to 91 race and haven't had any problems nor did I notice much of a decrease in performance.

I would say not, different parts of the country have one or the other.

I haven't noticed anything, maybe I'm one of the lucky ones lol, I'm hoping that I have no problems when they put my cams in and change the tune, but for now I'm problem free. I haven't had any other tune then the 93 so I'm not sure about the other ones.

I use the 93R tune for daily driving. I have NEVER loaded the 91 or 87 tune I got from them lol. They recommend you not to run the R tunes daily since throttle response is touchy, especially on 4.10s BUT you get used to it. Nothing footwork can't solve.

I will say that my throttle is extremely sensitive with the R tune, it's like your ether on it or off, it just wants to go lol, but iv learned to control it a little better with careful foot work, I love it it just adds to the driving experience.

The 87 Street I BELIEVE, at least from bama is purposely designed to achieve better MPG while still adding some power.

The 93R has KILLED my MPG but I don't care haha

Re: DD tune

I have a 93 tune but I dont trust the gas 100% so pulling it back a bit is better for me, but being N/A and having a knock sensor you are probably fine.

So the tunes do not circumvent the knock sensors?

I get it only from a few places to reduce the chance of lower aki than advertised.
