    Probably not much of a power gain, but the extra $5 it cost to fill up with 93 is worth in my opinion to get a more willing engine. Sounds like you think so too.

    Probably the 93 is worth 4-5 hp peak, but gains at all rpm. The cold - probably the same or a bit less.

    Interesting to see how the Carerra does with it. There are a whole bunch of places in SoCal where you can buy higher octane fuels.

    I bought a Lucas Octane booster and it felt like it helped a little bit. I am sure it brought it close to the 93 octane found outside California. I know there is a Unocal 76 in Pasadena that sells 100 Octane racing gas for like $8 a gallon. Naturally on anything other than a racecar, that stuff is worthless.
