I wondering if I can run 100 octane low lead in my car. I having issues finding race fuel from a reliable source and I know the airport fuel is better than any. The catch is it has a small amount of lead in it. I do not have any cats and plan on using it just occasionally so I'm wondering if I can use it?

I know I would need to change the valve on my waste gate. But other than that, any issues?

Thanks Guys

It will eventually kill your 02 sensors. How long will that take? No clue.

Have you thought about running water/meth injection with pump gas?

I already have issues finding someone to tune my car as it is. But the answer is yes, I have thought about it. The intercooler is rated to 700 but I know that there can be some impressive gains from meth injection.

Maxpsi,
I could piss in your tank after the 5 shots of 2killya I have had. I would probably help after the beat down I gave you Thursday.

Yes you did own me.

Hopefully the tune issues get resolved when Tony emails me and I get some data loggin in.

I wonder how that race would change if we both had traction.
Like I said that night "My car was faster tonight even though its the slower of the 2 cars"

I picked up those 4, 5 gallon pails of 100 octane today, and got ride of the old stuff.

Next time we will put the DR's on.

what are you on about?
If you run leaded fuel through most wastegates it will damage the valve. You can the "race valve",which I beleive is stainless, with any fuel but they are most expensive so manufactures put the standard valve.

Well if you're running a tial (which most are) I think those all come with stainless stuff already.

It is a Tial. I guess I should look at it closely to figure out which valve is in there. I had no idea there were different valves until I was on their website.

Sweet! Depending on what is going on tomorrow the girls might pile up in the car and come down to pick them up.

I will also be stealing back the fuel rail drain.
Sounds good, just give me a heads up so I can let the boss know, and to make sure I am not working late.
