Default Power and performance differences between octane fuels - 11-17-2019, 10:29 AM

So, silly question... has anyone run the dyno with 87 and 93 octane to see what the ACTUAL power difference is?

Just wondering how much timing and limiters are actually taking away on standard street gas.

I wouldn't even run the stock tuning on 87 octane, certainly not any aftermarket tuning!
