I believe that's cause of the altitude, making up boost for high altitude

No and Yes ... The VT1 kit will only come with a 4.5lbs boost pulley. I had requested a smaller pulley from Roman and was advised about the small risk of running a higher boost pulley on a non-intercooled kit.

Yes but I'm at sea level so not in my case ... Just a little more power

Hi bud, looks like you having fun
You really need to upgrade to a intercooled kit!!

Then while you changing fuel injectors, and retuning you may as well just go 625 kit!!

I would so do this if I could get the DCT software, but too expensive to ship AJ out to me to do it.

VT2 600 upgrade will be a nice change

Whats up Mang!!

Yeah ... I've been trying to max out everything before going to the VT2 systems. I wanna run the 625 but $9.85 per gallon for 100oct will kill my wallet

All good in the fashion world!

Then just go 600 like I did. You can manage to mix fuel to get your 93AKI without busting your wallet?

I mix Sunoco 104 RON with pump 95 RON 50/50 so I'm effective 99 RON which is perfect.

Just do it

Mixing is too much of a hassle so I'm thinking of just running 100oct all the time

I'm sure my service agent will still do the regular maint .. I've only got 5000 miles on the car so I haven't gone in yet

93 AKI is the same as 98 RON

With mixing I am running 99RON or 94 AKI

Keep it a secret my dealer is a friend so maintenance is done quietly.

I have run 104 RON neat in the car which is the same a 100AKI. you don't really get that much more out of it.

For boost over 6,5psi you should run 93 aki /98 RON so to save money just run that otherwise it gets expensive
