Naughty naughty Avi, running that cheapo gas. Bettery you than me!
I am not suprised you got a little pinging with under those
conditions. I always carry a bottle of octane booster that I can
use in an emergency, as keeping my foot out of for a whole tank would
prove impossible. :-) As we left it, after install, you car was running
pretty darned fast.
I don't really recommend installing a pop off vavle on a car with a
catalytic convertor. You will be fooling the FI system into dumping
fuel into the system and thus down the exhaust manifold, and into
your cat. A closed loop that dumps back into turbo inlet is
a better approach. I hope to develope a kit next year.
