nope. its like if your running 87 octane gas and pour some of that into your tank, youll be running like 90 summtin octane.....

well I had a different experence... I always fill my 3G with 91 (highest they have in So.Cal) and I was at pepboys one day and saw the section of octane boosters... well I picked up 2 16oz bottles of turbo108... I noticed a definite hp increase... it also reduces the octane requirement and increases Anti-Knock effieciency... cleans out your engine pretty good as well... plus your engine burns hotter and the exhaust smell is awesome... (ya Im weird like that :werd: ) When you rev your engine it doesnt backfire and the revs seem faster as well... all I can say is try it once it cant hurt... remember to run your tank as dry as you can get it... and right before you fill your car up (at the station) dump 2 16oz bottles in there...then fill your car up... just make sure you only have 10% or less of the tank with the booster... if you only want to fill your tank half way only put in one bottle.... rev the car a few times after your fill her up to flush the remaining gas out of the float and your running high octane....:super:

I tried it in my car. It was noticable but it wasn't like I had a great increase in power. I smoothed things out pretty good.

91 octane is the highest in socal?? damn we got 110 octane here....

05-21-2002, 03:59 PM
AHHHH!!!!! :eek: IM MOVING!!!!!! You have that in the gas stations????? You have to be talking about racing fuel... If there is :bow: 110 octane in Missouri at gas stations.... I... AM... OUT... OF... HERE!!!!!!!

05-21-2002, 04:16 PM
yah they love streetracing here. thats why all the gas stations have 110 octane.

05-21-2002, 06:48 PM

yup.. I have used that stuff before..

there is 2 different formulas.. one is called " street Formula" which just brings your octane up by like 3 points .

then there is the " racing formula" which brings your octane points up by 7 points... so if ya put like 91 or 92 octane in.. it will bring it up to about 98 or 99 octane....

but those cans go for anywhere from $16- 22 Canadian...

I can fill my car up w/gas for less than $30.. depending on the price...

I live in so cal and here i can get 104 for $4.50 a gal. don't forget the race formula has a small amount of nitro methane. :super:
