Re: Octane

if the tune is for 91 then you will need to run it and it will make a difference over mid grade by a decent amount. where is the tune from, it should be a custom one not just an off the shelf (aka not as good as it could be) tune.

Re: Octane

I have a diablo tune on my 06 it seems to work well but it was on the car when I bought so I don't know what it is set for but I have been running 91 octane in it since I bought just in case it is set for 91, it also has a supercharger on it and I heard with a supercharger you should run premium gas.

Re: Octane

Sweet! Have you had a chance to run it around a track? Bring it by High Plains Raceway at months end (HPR). I hope to be working this event. Great Stang!
