Help on what Maps I can run

Hey guys, I recently got my AR Design DP installed at LTMW. Now I was just wondering what Maps I can run?
Mods are: JB4 Stage 2, CPE CP, Injen Intake, and AR Catless DP.

I usually keep it on map 0 for everyday driving. Then when I wana have some extra fun I put it in map 1. But now with the DP idk what I can run....

I know I can run map 1 safely. What about map 2 on 91 octane? Is that ok?
I live in LA idk where you guys are getting 93 from...I would prefer not to run Octane booster for every day driving.

And what's faster? Map 2 or Map 5? Or does it depend on the circumstances?

Thanks in advance!

Well I don't have a FMIC, with the fuel i'm running is map 2 safe? It says 93 octane with octane booster on the burger tuning site.

Map 2 if you can mix to 93 octane - 15psi. Should be more than a little faster haha

So you can see how your car reacts to the increased boost on 91. If it likes it, then run map 2.

Try map 5, it's smoother than Map 2 IMO. 91 octane on Map 2... eh, you should have something higher.

Ohh ok. I had another question. After getting the DP installed I'm hearing a weird noise when I throttle from a stop. Is that my waste gate?

Actually it will tell you, in the form of timing getting pulled in the log.

Could you be more specific? And what type of transmission do you have?

Could be the sputter from your exhaust... Does it sound sexy and gurgle?
LOL

EDIT: Nevermind I read it backwards. I thought you meant from a go to a stop.

I have an Automatic Tranny. And it's just this strange noise, but I'm sure it's something normal that comes with having a DP. I've just never had one.

Just in case others would like to know. I talked to Terry and he said I should stick with map 1. If I use higher octane or octane booster, then I can use map 2. Or else I'll just get a lot of knock which won't give me more power. And he said I can run map 5 as well, i personally feel like map 5 is faster.

Just my own 2 cents.
