Paxton supercharger kit being built to order!

Just ordered the kit yesterday for my 2011 GT and had a couple questions. I currently have an airaid intake and was wondering if the provided tune would be ok using the airaid filter rather than the stock air box without running into afr problems? Second I live in Florida and 93octane is what I've been using with my bama race tune and the Paxton tune is for 91octane. Would there be any benefit to using 93octane with it?

You want to tune for every thing done to your car. The cold air with open filter will actually increase boost by about a 1lb. This causing car to run a little lean. Also get a 93 octane tune for the car and run 93. You will make more power and have a better tune. The standard tunes that come with all kits are okay at best. Do you have an off road x pipe? If not get one as a blower can destroy your stock cats. And it will make more power alos. Where did you buy your kit? price? You can PM that info.

Until I get a 93 octane tune would there be any reason to not just use 91 octane with the Paxton tune?

91 or 93 will be just fine. You can always go up in octane but NEVER go down. Anything 91 and up is considered premium, so you'll be fine with that, and unless you plan on racing or dyno or something the 93 won't really benefit at all
