no I just heard from people that running the cars exact recommended octane gives you better MPG and performance than actually using higher octane

And you don't think that recommendation might be negated when you install an aftermarket forced induction system?

I'm gonna assume retardation like this is outright trolling for a first post, and will start banning these morons after 3 posts.

OP, you have 1 post to convince me otherwise.

Haildoritos. Not only can you run 87 but you can probably get away with bumping the time 10 degrees. Post HP results for science please.

I thought aftermarket FI would just make my car more efficient. That's why I found the one gas station that sells 79 in my area!
