Torco accelerator

Anyone here using the Torco brand "octane boost"? Going to my dyno tomorrow am and needed a cost efficient way to make higher octane out of the 91 up here in Maine. Due to time restrictions i bought 5 gal of vp race fuel to mix and make 97. Cost me about $100... That's only enough to mix 2 tanks of fuel. So looking for a cheaper way i came across Torco. Thoughts on the product b4 i order 5 gallons? By the way to make 97 in two tanks in my car the Torco only costs around $30. Huge difference!

Why do you want to tune the car for higher octane than you can get?

Is this going to be a street tune or a track-only tune?

I can't really comment on the Torco stuff any more than "read the label" but it sounds like you might be creating a huge hassle for yourself by tuning the car for gas that you cannot buy. If this is a street tune I would stick with the 91 octane pump gas that you can buy, and tune it for that.
