    RS-Tuning DME and octane booster

    Anyone know if octane booster required to run 91 octane gas (California)with RS-Tuning basic DME(485hp and 730Nm torque)? Car to be tuned is 996 TT with X50. Thanks.

    Re: RS-Tuning DME and octane booster

    Every motronic software can be adapted to low octane fuel.
    The original kits from RS-Tuning are usually adapted to 98 octane (EUROPE) fuel which is the equivalent to 95 octane fuel in the USA. But I'm pretty sure that RS-Tuning doesn't sell the same kits in the US because of lower fuel quality. I guess it depends who sells you the kit and if the kit is adapted to lower fuel quality or not. Even over here in Germany, RS-Tuning recommends the usage of an octane booster. I suppose that the distributor of RS-Tuning kits in the US (Cargraphic USA ?) knows about available fuel quality in the US and adapted the kits to the most common available fuel quality, 93 octane US. But I'm not sure about it. Why don't you ask ? I wouldn't rely solely on octane boosters.
    BTW: with the X50, you should go for over 500 HP. You already have the bigger turbo chargers, why not go a little bit further ?!

    Thanks RC.

    93 US octane are the same as the 98 EUR octane.
    91 Octane may be too low. With the X50 you will get at leats 520 HP with the RS DME and his exhaust.

    93 octane US is the equivalent to 96 octane EUR.
    95 octane US would be 98 octane EUR.
    Most common fuel quality in the US is 93 octane and 91 octane as far as I know.
