these 3v's amaze me and scare me at times.... so here's why i say this.
I'm driving home last night, the wife and I met up with a few friends, kinda buzzed (not drunk).. im going 50mph in 4th, mat it 90%... pinging... WTF!!!!
i couldnt believe my ears.. I even run 89 in this car because i've heard s197's dont have high octane tables.. now my car is a 2008 with 2110 miles on it, just had its first oil changed 1k ago with mobil1....

thhhhhhenn, i'd say 30 miles later, got to turn into Sheetz, have it in second...miss miss miss ... sounded and felt like 1 cylinder had took vacation.
So, listen... yea it was definently missing even my wife agree'd..
Turned it off, took the key out. put it back in started it, runs out like a raped ape (no misfire, i'm a redneck. and i talk with my hands)... these cars are super smart i guess.. no CEL, no changed in engine output. Put a set of Jeg's axle back's on right before i left to go to the saloon, sound quiet they're coming off but aint that weird? anyone share this expirience?

later yall

GAS

You can run anything you want if you don't have a tune. It will run better on 91 or 93 octane. I ran 93 octane at least a year and a half before I got my tune, zero problems. Priemium will keep your intake valves cleaner. If you are having these symptoms, take it to the dealer pronto.

It doesn't run better on 93 since its tuned for 87... I've been running 87 on mine... except for one time when the gas station only had premium, not a difference @ all from 87... I [ersonally wouldn't run 93 unless I got a tune... it's wasted money if if you ask me.
