Any one has experience with octane booster?

I need to boost 87 Octane to 91 to run a BWR SC'd 05 elise. with CharlieX's Tune.

What brand of booster do i need? how much to mix?

Assume I can only get 87 octane (please dont ask why)

For the last 10 years I've heard nothing but bad things about octane boosters.
They all grossly overestimate their ability to boost the octane, and many actually only increase the "octane" by decimal points.

I've been looking for 100 or 93.5 oct here in Colorado, due to some pinging when it got to 95-100degrees here, no luck... so I'd be interested too. :p

octane boosters don't work. Best thing to do in your situation is to add some 100 octane to get to the desired 91 octane.

I suggest you look into toluene. Google "toluene octane booster", you'll find lots of info. Use at your own risk, handle carefully (just like you need to handle gasoline carefully).

HTH,
