Well I know you put gas in it, but what gas do you use? What gas should I use for performance/racing?

I normally use Chevron w/ Techron regular (87)

I use BP or any major vendor and add injector cleaner every couple fill ups. There isnt "performance" gas. The more compression you have the higher octane you need to prevent pre detonation. For N/A you should run 87.

Lol you might dyno slightly higher i guess. Cars are made from factory to run 87 unless otherwise specified.

I run minimum 91 w/ my Stage 0 Sniper

If you're running more than 87 and you're N/A, you're wasting money and losing horsepower. I remember going to the track last year with a gallon of 94 in the tank (this was when I was N/A), and ran 3/4 of a second slower than when I had a full tank of 87... It makes a huge difference. When it comes to your N/A v6, 87 is what you use for performance, despite what the ruffians without the chops claim...

dosent make sense to me my car runs so much better with higher octane gas in it. the throttle is more responsive and it just all around feels quicker.
