and yes, even in Edmonton. But 94 Rocks with a Diablo 93 Tune! gotta pay to play


I've ran 94 octane since new, all year round on a Diablo 93 canned tune.
Last Winter was the first time I went down to the 89 octane and stock tuning, never doing that again.
(The owners manual recommends 89 octane, so I didn't want to go down to 87 and deal with engine knock)

As soon as I reloaded my 94 and re-tuned in the Spring it felt like a Beast again, almost forgot just how good it was with my shift points maxed out at 6400 rpm.

It does cost more but to me it's worth it.

Once my Ripp goes on my octane will be boosted to 116 with alcohol injection
Is that at Husky? I thought they use ethanol and I thought we were supposed to avoid that?

Man o man, I can't imagine how fun a supercharger would be. Would you daily drive that alcohol injection beast?

There's only 10% Ethanol in Husky gas, which works awesome in the Winter!
(as opposed to Flex-Fuel E-85 that's 85% Ethanol and only 15% Gas)
I don't think you can find 93 Octane anywhere without a partial Ethanol blend in Canada.

Regardless my Ram loves the Husky High Test!
My bud MGRAM-10 runs it on his Ripp'd supercharged Ram too.
Data Logging with my tuner indicates zero LT Knock Retard and less than .5 degrees ST Knock RT.

Alcohol kits are being installed right after we get our new transmissions bolted in....and yes, daily driver/weekend racer.
... alcohol injection (Water/Methanol) will only kick in after boost reaches 4-5 psi to cool the charge as added detonation insurance.

Ok, reactivating this thread with a similar question to the original. I have continued running the 87 tune with 89 in the tank and I just recently put in my 180 t-stat. I had disconnected the battery as I always do when installing a new engine part but I when I put it all back together and ran it, it wasn't quite right. I went through and reset all my parameters and reloaded the tune...all good.

My question though is I found a couple of things in the tuner that I don't remember seeing (probably just wasn't paying close enough attention the first time). One was Partial Throttle Upshift parameter and the other was a DiabloSport canned tune.

What are these?
