Super unleaded is 93 octane here!!

In our area the super unleaded is 93 octane regular unleaded is 87 octane.Out of the 2 choices of course i'll go with the 93.My question is i've seen some talk about HP increases with 93 octane & a tune.

Are there any TUNERS available for the 2011 5.0 yet?

I've never used a tuner b4 so ease of use would be important.I understand they come with preloaded tunes.Is that correct?Any info would be appreciated.

I have a Diablo Preiditor & it has preloaded tunes for different Octanes & u will notice a difference & I've even saved money on gas from going with a higher octane & a tune!

The predator tune is defiantly one of the better preloaded tunes out there. You will certainly see not only HP increases with 93 octane, but you will also get an increase in gas mileage. However they are still working on one for the 2011 car.

That's a pretty nice looking set up, it will work without a tune, however it appears to be 2% more efficient in terms of air flow with the tune, and you get a bit more HP out of tuning it.
