I know I can swap to E-85 but I want to do that as a lats resort. Are there other options? I dont plan to race the car. Just street drive. Thanks in advance.
Sorry dude, but nope....all the octane boost in the world isn't going to stop that from eating itself on pump. Which pistons are in it? If the compression is there by tiny CC heads, then maybe you will be OK when you switch to alum heads. That's going to be what you need to know.
