Does octane boost really do anything if the engine dosnt need the octane rating to be high I just run BP ultimate it is 95 or whatever.
Would Octane boost really do anything more ?

Like data_mine said, if you tune you car for it.
An example would be summernats, 1000HP from cars on PUMP fuel, allthough some get 1500HP but they run and are tuned for exotic fuels.

I have beat a a few VL's and some exotic slow protons in a charade style pyzar mini van + could do way better burnouts to

we are talking 1.6L of pawah + 1100kg though only

i miss the good old days of having two single slammer 1.6L's in my drive way


this is going to be the style of my next build once i cam my EA and slightly lower it
