Thinking bout running a some sort of racing fuel to see if I can gain a tenth or so was wondering if anyone else runs it with out a tune I have no cats so that won't be an issue I am running just 89 right now

Higher Octane = Harder to Burn Fuel. A stock engine with no tune would probably get SLOWER with 100 octane.

Higher octane allows more compression, forced induction and timing which all require a more resistant-to-burn fuel. If you don't have any of those ... no need ... no gain.

You should go ahead and grab tuner from AM. See what software your local tuner uses, then go ahead and grab a handheld.

Ya I have been wanting one my dads got one on his 05 seems to really like it his is an auto so I know his will have greater gains over my 5 sp but it still would be nice to have my speedo is off by 15 - 20 cause of the gear swap and ck engine lt is on cause of the off rd pipe I know those would be fixed with the tune
