Driving from Delaware to Key West in a few weeks I may just run it on 89 for the long highway trips since I want to save a little money, but day in day out I run 91 and above.
Im going to put it out there that switching between fuel grades on a regular basis is going to waste more fuel (as the ECU adjusts) than sticking to the better grade and keeping the boot off the accelerator.
When the ECU detects a knock it pulls timing, and decreasing octane increases the likelihood of knock. So you start a new learning cycle and basically are shooting yourself in the foot.
Keep running the better fuel and turn on that stupid BluesCluesFuelSaveGame or whatever it is called.

well - I just ordered the Pierce Motorsports Rear Torsionbar Brace today - we'll see if there is any noticeable difference in "daily driving" once installed - I do understand the Principle involved. From my experience, the best handling improvement was changing out the 215/40R18 Kuhmo "All Season" tires to 225/40R18 Hi-Perf "Summer Tires"………….I'll give my opinion of any noted difference with the Brace once I drive it …………Larry

Jon gave me this advice when I first bought the car and experienced "Turbo Wave" - and he was SPOT ON - I've never gone back from Shell V-Power Nitro+ and after 7000 miles have NEVER experienced the Turbo Wave again…….Larry

Hello there-thanks for your orders! We've sold out of our torsion bars unexpectedly, but have another pallet coming in around the first week of June---your orders are in the first 50 bars and we should have a 100 coming to us so they will ship immediately. You'll receive tracking info when they leave, thanks again!

I know this is old, does anyone know how this is on fully stock? On their site it says minor movement is needed with the stock exhaust for the torsion install. I wouldn't mind making my ride more sporty so I am curious!

Im only getting significant oil flow back from the PCV valve. I checked, the oil literally dropped all the way down to the paper air filter

PCVV is not connected to the pre-compressor intake. Breather outlet is, however, so that is what is causing blow-by oil to drip down towards the air filter.

You should either put a high-filtration catch can on both valve cover outlets, or skyvent both; skyvent the breather outlet ASAP at a minimum until you decide your long-term strategy. Clean all the oil out of the intake, charge pipes, intercooler and throttle body.
