Paul, just buy one - you simply will not regret it! Even from an economy view point it would more than likely pay for itself in the first year. Ohhh and then there's the fun factor of having one  :whistle:

    on RON 95, but I'm sure it will still be much quicker regardless!

    I don't think it will be worthwhile doing it if you can't run super or add octane booster.

    Surely a 25% gain in HP doesn't depend so much on the slight differences a clever car with 98RON makes to the timing to avoid knock?  You might not get the full potential of the box, but easy a noticable gain.  20%, 15% worst case...

    As I've said, I've used 95 ron many times and struggle to tell the difference.

    Beware of insurance increases though.

    It has to be done under the bonnet its a blanking plate for want of a better description, 2 second job.

    I'd love to have a switch in the cabin -- maybe using the blank near the TTC switch?  :whistle:
     
    Daron said you can't switch it when the engine is running, but with all the knowhow out there, surely someone can wire it up so that it's dead if the engine is running -- Then all you'd have to do is turn off, hit the button, turn on and grin  ;D ;D ;D

    Being able to turn it on at the traffic lights when el-chavo pulls up next to ya without popping the bonnet! 8) I'd pay for that!
