Default 87 or 91 Octane Tune

I have a Diablo Sport Predator tuner & currently running the 87 tune. In Calgary we have 91 Octane fuel readily available but 93 is hard to come by. Would i see much difference between an 87 & a 91 tune ?????

You don't need to run a couple of tanks of 91 before you do that tune. Just put in a full tank of 91 when it gets low, install the tune, then take if for a spirited drive.

I tried both the 87 and 91 with modified parameters (MDS off, Rev Limit +600, throttle response +15). There is a noticeable difference. But not so much for me to spend the difference in the cost of gas. Just today, here is the peoples republic of Kalifornia, regular cost $3.07 for 87 and $3.40 for 91 (~$11 for 32 gallon tank )

So yesterday i filled up with 91 octane & plugged the Predator in to my truck & its only giving me a choice of 87 or 93 tune. The programme on my desktop semms to be all screwed up as well.
Shoud i restore to original tune & delete the programme from my desktop & Re-install ??
& would i be able to download the 91 tune from Diablo site.?
Sorry to be a pain but this is driving me crazy

What is your elevation? Im assuming around 2-3k feet? If so, you can use a 93 tune w/ 91 octane. You dont have as much oxygen in the air at that elevation as they do at sea level, therefore they dont even sell it most likely anywhere in your neck of the woods.
