93.5 Octane and Boost Observations.
« on: August 26, 2004, 12:47:20 PM »
So I went to the Petro stop right across from Quincy where it T's with Parker Rd. and I filled up with 93.5 at $1.97gal.!!!
Holy crap! Now I know why I see nice cars at a old filling station and why I'll be going there from now on.

I drove the car all day yesterday and didn't really seen much difference. I was getting slightly higher boost spike levels on a more consistent basis though. ie. I spike at 9 a little more often now.

In fact yesterday, I held at 9 for about 7-8sec. but it was at 2500-3000. Not quite sure why that is. I get higher boost levels flooring it at lower RPMs. Go figure.

I've actually spiked at 10 like twice going around 50 and stepping on it at about 2500rpm.

I did hook my boost line up to the one everyone else does.

At all other times, I usually hang around the 6-7 range.
