    So there is a station near me that sells Trick 101 octane from the pump and I am looking for any experience (or opinions even) with a race gas tune on a decently built N/A car. I don't expect any huge gains, but if the car could gain maybe 10-15 hp and some torque throughout the rpm range, I might go for spending the $ to do it.

    Thanks for any advice !

    You won't gain anything unless you increase spark advance and depending how rich your current air fuel ratio is you could take some fuel out of the tune as well, I like about 12.8 for NA

    OK, yes I planned to tune for it to see if any gains to be had, just wondering if anyone had done this on their n/a 2v. Again I don't expect a lot, but curiosity is getting the best of me. I think I am going to just pony up the $250 bucks and see what happens.

    Stay tuned...
