I' ve got a tillman 91 street/race tune for colorado. because of the move I'm pretty broke do I need a 93 tune because of the high octane there or will my car be OK untill I get the 93 tune.

Welcome to Texas, home of 93 octane and 100+ degree heat. :nogrinner

I agree with Sqidd you will need a new tune.

Agree with GAP you don't need a new tune to run a higher octane gas.

Well, I just talk to Chris at tillman and he said that I will be ok running a 91 tune on 93 octane, just not a 93 tune on 91 octane. But like I said earlier I'll be getting a new tune as soon as I can. (waiting for the another sale at Tillman!!! )

Nah.. were not THAT trigger happy.. or are we? :hihi:

Probably don't have to worry too much until the New World Order tries to take over.. at that point I would probably run for cover.

Correct, we have 87, 91, and 93 available. You can run a higher octane than a vehicle (or a tune) is built for, but not a lower.
You do not want your timing to get ahead of combustion or you can damage your engine.

Well been here for a few weaks now and I love the better performance but with nearly no rain here theres alot more oil on the roads so hooking up on the street is different than colorado, the silver lining is it's easier to drift the turnabouts :hihi:
