I think you'll really enjoy a Bama tune. I am currently running the 93 Octane Race tune on my 2011 GT and I absolutely love it. The added power, torque, acceleration and drive ability really make this car fun to drive. I definitely fell in the love with the car all over again after loading the tune.

I hope some other people can comment here and give you their personal experiences. My experience with Bama tunes has always been great. I know I may be biased, but this is just me talking from a personal stand point!

I loved my auto gt from the factory... Then I got a tune and intake combo and WOW. When I go back to stock for dealer service it doesn't even feel like the same car. I run 91 octane tunes because that's the highest available to me, and I stick with the performance tune unless I really want to unleash the wolf...

Honestly I think you should use 91 or 93 octane, whatever is offered in your area. It spent cost that much more to run the better gas. If you have a 15 gallon tank and gas cost 3$ for 87 and 3.25$ for 91/93 octane, it would only cost you another 3.75$ to fill up from empty. That's not much IMO to run a much better fuel in my car.

I had a 76 Chevy pickup that my bro had given me. It had mid leanth headers on it. I replaced the carburetor and put long tube headers on it. When I removed the old headers each of the exhaust ports had a lot of carbon build up in them. When I put the new headers on I ran nothing but 93 in it for 6 months and one day I decided to pull a headed just to see if the car on was still there. When I got the header off they were all clean and I've used 93 every since for anything I drive. I seen first hand what better gas did.

I also agree with this! I would recommend using the best fuel available in your area. The higher octane you run, the more aggressive we can make your tune! Premium isn't really that much more expensive than Regular. My 2011 GT has never seen anything but 93 Octane!

However, there is absolutely nothing wrong with running 87 Octane. 91 or 93 is just better for the car.
