<font face="Comic Sans MS">Actually depending on what your timing is set to and how high your compression is you probably do not need 92 octane. And in an engine that doesn't need higher octane you actually lose performance since the flame travels slower with higher octane fuel. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]</font>
