hey guys n girls. benny here again for a quik question regarding my 3v xt.
Would it be worth getting my car custom tuned for 98 fuel or will the gains be really negligable to the point of un_noticeable if it was tunes for 95 fuel
i mean like 2_4 rwkw. or will it be reasonable to go to the extra effort of 98?
Thanx.

unless $4 a tank breaks the budget, just tune it and run it on 98...

Not that I have alot of experience, just a J3 which I opted to have tuned for 95. It's an availability/cost/reward thing for me. Perhaps a tuner could add more figurative value.

if its an availability thing then you probably have no choice but to tune to 95 for safety. there wont be a huge difference on an N/A car....
and when 98 is available you can use it on your 95 ron tune

yea might hav a chat with bpt when i can.
as i said all i wana know is if its gonna be worthwhile stuffin around and goin to the hassle of gettin a 98 tune.
if were talkin about 10rwkw or somthin then i will.
if its only 2/3 then thers not much point.

Mate, I'd be waiting for Pete (XR9UTE) to read this and take his advice. IMHO, 98 unless you are in an area where it isn't available regularly.
