Simple question really.

Where, and how much should i be looking to pay?

Have heard alittle about this make of fuel additive. Seems to come recomended. But does it really make a noticable difference?

Yes, I notice a difference as it allows me to run Timing 7 with my SPS3 with very minimal timing pull. Timing 6 gives 0 across all four cylinders.

It retails at ?4.99 a bottle but shop around, I got 20 bottles for ?55 (?2.75 ea).

Didn't realise there were lots of different ones.

The only engine mods so far is the revo 4bar. I am attending the RR session in April so thought i might give this stuff a look. Help improve my performance.

Is it available in most motor shops or is it a specialist item?

And CVL Turbo which is THE DADDY!!

Timing 9 with SPS3 - yes please [:D]

The only problem is that it won't do your catalytic converter any good in the long term, also your wallet would be taking a big hit at ?7.99 a bottle!!

Might be a daft question to some people but my car has been chipped and will now only run at its best with 98ron, if i use an octane booster will this affect the map? what sort of gains can i expect? what do people reccomend and how much/where from? Thanks.
