    Default Octane booster

    This has probably be discussed before but here it is anyways.
    1st, where do you get the good stuff? and 2nd does it actually work?
    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

    sort of...

    NOS race octane booster, in the black bottle. I bought it at mopac and it is expensive. I think you are better off buying toulene if you want an octane booster.

    I could run a bit more timing with this stuff.

    Everything from mopac is expensive! Would i be better off just getting racing gas?

    Just add tetraethyl lead


    Not good stuff... Plus If you leave your cat on, it can melt and clog the exhaust in minutes

    what do you want to do? Turn up the boost and drag race? My friend ran 100mph traps with a intake, muffler and boost, about 21psi (i think... it pegged the 20psi autometer gauge.) That was on c16.

    vp103 was good for about 3mph on my friends 16g power FWD laser.

    The people who crack me up are the ones who fill up with 87 and then say "I'll add a few bottles of 100 to get my octane back up where it should be".... umm, no.

    Well i'm thinking of takin the talon to ss tonight. I will run as high of boost as it will let me, so i'll probably just get the vp shit and see how it works out.

    The NOS stuff really does work..... the stuff with nitromethanol in it... its about $18-$20 per bottle, but actually works. not like the $12 104 stuff that does next to nothing )

    VP C16 is about 15 per gallon. mixed 50/50 with 92 octane gets ya about 104 in the tank, or at 70gas/30Vp gets ya about 100 octane....much better then any octane booster.
