Re: I got real gas today

You are wasting your money, premium gas allow you to advance your timing without pinging and knocking so unless you can advance the timing for better performance then it's waste of money

It also allows you to have a higher compression ratio. I have to run it in my GTI because of the turbo. The boost can get up there rather quickly.

Of course that also, but I don't think the OP 5.0 HO has a higher compression to use premium...

OP car has 4.6L 3V SOHC with VTC, not old pushrod 302CI motor, nor do I have the new "Coyote" 5.0 DOHC engine. See »Dyno tunes are so worth it for more information.
