Is you car tuned for anything above 93?

is it leaded or unleaded? don't use it if it is leaded!

won't do anything for you unless you advance the timing a couple of degrees.

unleaded. i dont know anywhere that sells gas for cars thats leaded.
when my car was tunned, it was tuned with the 93 octane. however im going to pedders day at backstreet performance next weekend and i was going to throw this in the car to help boost the octane a bit, and put it on the dyno and see what kind of difference it makes.

You don't want the higher octane for a dyno run, unless you plan on running the 110 all the time, the dyno will be useless to give you an accurate bench mark. Unless you are just hoping to have a dyno sheet with a little extra to one-up anyone with the same mods. Save the 110 for a night you plan on going to a track or horsing around!

im not going to run 110 all the time, concidering adding a 5 gallon jug to a 20 gallon tank wont make it 110 octane. it would be somewhere around 98-99 octane. im wanting to take it to the dyno and see what kind of numbers i can get just by upping the octane. i dynoed at 461 rwhp and im curious what i can get by adding this. i know a guy with a 911 turbo runs 93 regularly and pushes over 650hp. when he runs pure 110(i think its 110, may be higher) he pushes close to 800. at the wheels. or so he says. numbers may vary. i dont know how accurate his stories can be. but i know upping octane, ups hp.

yeah, exactly

and the only way it ups HP, is #1 - you have a bunch of KR normally, so the higher octane helps to get rid it, giving you back lost power that you should have had anyway - in which case you should get your tune fixed so that you don't have all of that KR normally...

or...

#2... you adjust the tune's timing to take advantage of the higher octane, while still minimizing KR...

neither one of which will gain you 150hp though... hehe...
