Hey Joel...sorry can't answer that question but don't forget to bring some 100 octane with you for this weekend! If you don't want to do that, I'll bring a can of Torco for you so that you aren't running straight up 91 dodo like you did last time! Alternatively I can show you the Unocal 76 gas station near the Airstrip that sells the VP 100 out of the pump. See you soon man.

Adam, it would be great if you could point me to the 76 near the airstrip that sells it at the pump. That way I can run a blend and don't have to carry gas on the 1.5-2 hour drive there. No issues with running a blend on the standard ESS 625 tune, right? Looking forward to this weekend man!

You can actually see the station on Google Maps. Go to Coalinga, then look for the intersection of the 5 and 269 (Lassen/Avenal exit). It's the only structure there.

You will pick up like 20-30 HP by running a blend of 100 and 91. I do 4-5 gallons per tank to try and blend to anywhere between 93 and 95 octane. Running too much octane is just a waste of money and some say you can "over-octane" it.

With your new exhaust set up and some 100 octane mix, your car should be as fast as mine was last time (which actually may be faster than I am now )

With the Akra Evo, 94/95 octane and those light BBS FI wheels, it may be me that gets my ass handed to me. My car is dyno'ing all over the place. One day is makes 580 and the next day it makes 540. With the water/meth kit it's all over the place.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for a 540 run You ran really strong last time, so I'm hoping to see it again! I need to get my car on the dyno again!
