It only requires meth if you are running 91 octane. If you run 93 octane or over you don't need it. I'm running 93-94octane permanently, but still run with meth on top.

Interesting! I wonder, if using an electronic boost controller we could turn down the boost a hair if stuck with some 91 for a tank?

Did a few runs using the Dynolicious app. Proved to be accurate with the GPS Performance box in the past.

Using only 99ron (93 octane) fuel without WMI just to see where things sit performance wise.

0-60 times are similar, which I expected, but top end gains help with the overall runs and quicker to 100mph.

Just to add that my current tires are going off a little, hence the slower 60' time. Normally my 60' time is under 1.8 on fresher tyres. So over 0.3 seconds slower at the 60' would mean over half a second slower on the 1/4 mile.

Tires fading, but the car goes well with the WMI running.

Update.....

After a few adjustments and some nice cool weather recently I did another few 1/4 mile runs. I must say I'm impressed with how the car is running at the moment and using this method or recording my runs has yielded results within 0.05 seconds for the time at an official strip.

Wow! Ya do know that if you can replicate that time at the strip you've just beat APR USA's own Stage 3 car!

Congrats!!

The turbo I'm running is pitched at 400bhp on pump gas, so with the extra mods and WMI I'm running I shouldn't be too far off APR's car with my DSG launch.
