Does anybody have a 93 chipped 1.8t that got the 100 octane race program from APR also?
I'm gonna go get it this weekend.
I know that 100 0ctane in my car with just tuning and the 93 program makes a BIG difference!
I wonder what the program made for the gas will do !!!
Anyone know?

All it does is advance the timing? Well if thats the case then my car praticaly already has the race program. Infact, my timing is already advanced 3 deg using V-tune. Does the 100 octance program advance the timing even further? Because when i put the 100 octane in my car last night, it sure felt alot faster. Maybe because my car has the timing advanced already?

Re: (ZIVLAN)

i was reading a hot rod magazine (dont recall which one) and they were doing back to back dyno runs changing the timing before every run. when they advanced the timing too much they lost somewhere around 5 to 7 horsepower compared to some of the other runs. i wish i knew what mag and what issue it was but i did read it. i dont believe everything i read but it is something to think about. changing the timing could make performance suffer. i was messing around with v tune at work and my boss told me i should put up my boost and retard my timing a little. i didnt try it yet but maybe i will give it a shot and get back to you guys
