Good to know. Just wanted to bring that to your attention because once I fixed the wheel spin on the HPF dyno, my numbers looked much better. Always a good idea to load the back end with some weight just to prevent any slippage, especially at this power level...

Great numbers!

I think that's as high as you can go with unleaded, anything after 110 switches to leaded.

Im wondering how much power different between Protune and Etune. Thinking of switching to Cobb from Procede.
can't exactly say the difference between Etune vs Pro Tune, but can say PTF know their Stuff... and with 91 octane I am sure you will be intrigued.

Thanks --- And that seems to be the trend. Think it'd be more effective (and simpler to guarantee octane consistency) if I ran straight MS109 as opposed to blending high octane leaded (like C16) with 93 octane/pump gas

Thanks, def interested to see if it'd be possible to get a little more power out of the stock turbos before I hit the strip in the spring. Also gonna need some Apex Wheels + DRs

Take a look at what I found. It appears they must blend the Ethanol with a better fuel than 87 octane. 112 AKI Octane rating @ 85% ethanol. (vs the 96 AKI E85 I get out of the pump) I was considering this fuel, but whats the risk of storing E85 for long periods of time? With absorbing the moister in all. 55 gallons would take me about 7-8 weeks to use up.

hover over the Green 112 drum.

Hmmmm.... kinda looks like the VP Racing E85 (which you can buy from 5 gal to 54), and it would be a lot more accurate to mix VP/Rocket E85 with Pump Gas. But like you said, could be a hassle storing it. 55 gallons would prob be good for 2-3 months with the occasional weekend warrior. You'd obviously get more out of it since you're screwed with just 91 octane

It's also GUARANTEED 85% Ethanol Content -- E85 out of a pump can vary between 70-85% ethanol content. Plus if you could get E85 pump, you really wouldn't be in the market for getting it shipped to you from VP Racing.
