Still, even with the same tune on the same car, I think a 91 octane dyno, a 93 octane dyno and a 100 octane race gas dyno would yield different numbers, with the higher octane producing the higher numbers.
Correct. There's more power to be made, but not dependent on HAVING to run meth like other kits. The beauty of running meth with this is the added cooling benefit, no necessarily max power.
