Just wondering what octane everybody uses and what they pay a gallon? I either go with sunoco 94 octane($1.89) or 93 at mobil($1.84). She definitly runs better accerleration wise with the 94 but when i let the rpm's come down i get slight popping sounds from the exhaust. I havent noticed it with lesser octanes.
Also, anybody use octane boosters?
89 ///M r.i.p.
88 ///M terrorizes the steets

Hey i have a supersprint exhaust adn a whole racing air intake and it pops like crazy once u let off the gas, kind of cool i think. But u can use anywhere from 91 upp in our cars. It calls for 91 but the only place hat has 91 is like kansas city or something so just stick with what yuour doing and the popping sound itr perfectly normal, i use ocane booste when i go to the track if i dont buy the race fuel. Octane booser is fine, although after using it i reccomend a bottle of fuel injector cleaner, hope i could help, Jim
