But I was looking at AutoZone the other day and saw that NOS has a booster out that says it raises octane by a full 60 points. Correct me if I'm looking at this wrong but say 87.0 octane and add the NOS booster (60 Points) that would bump it up to 93.0 octane?? I'm thinking each 1 octane is 10 points right? Or would it be each .1 is 10 points. So say the 87.0 octane would only go up to 87.6??

    I don't know! Someone shed some light on this.
    If it really said 60 points then it would go from 87 to 93.

    Here's a link that tells about the product. I guess they have three different ones, 30 points Street, 50 points Off Road, and 60 points Race. The only place I'v seen this is at Advance Auto but not to say other auto parts stores don't carry it.

    Has anybody tried any of these? Would it be bad to run the 60 point race stuff in a pretty much stock motor?

    If you look at the MSDS of the racing octane booster it doesn't say anything about lead. I also looked at the TDS (which is a also a link on that page) it says " It was developed to increase octane effect
    ratings as much as seven (7) points." so I don't know what to beleive.

    Thanks to all that have made it possible for us!

    And im happy to be the one to tell you that you no longer live in a FREE country my friend. Watch closely and listen..... When this "great/free" democracy we live in starts telling you what you can drive, how many firearms you CANNOT own, and what kind of medical insurance you need, but cant afford, something MUST be done. And those guys over there that I appreciate just as much as the next guy........ Are fighting a bogus/bullshit war just to fill a morons pockets with more money just before he leaves the great white house.

Where the fuck does these retarded morons come from? And better yet....... WTF do the morons who vote for these people "freely" come from?? They want to take your guns to make this country safer HAHAHAHAHAHA yeah cause criminals wont be able to still buy them on the street corner. Let them take yours.... That way them and the criminals will be the only armed people taking everything you have.

    CamaroFan... Just because your pissed off that you are not getting something you expect to be "given" to you, doesn't mean you have to hate freedom...

    You don't like it here? Go somewhere else. This country doesn't need another whiney prick telling everyone whats wrong with it. Go to Korea where you cant even buy a magazine. I'm sure that is a much better place to live.

    This country and has been and will always be forged by war, whether we like it or not. So it's time to man up, shut up, and respect the country that give you a SAFE home to live in.

    P.S.- You have a lot of grammatical problems to be calling other people "morons".

    God Bless America!

    Hot off the net today....

    Here are some should know facts before you vote. Very interesting since we are always blaming GW for the way things are now! Don't want to offend anyone, but feel compelled to share.

    Part 1:

    In just two years? Remember the elections in 2006?

    Thought you might like to read the following:

    A little over one year ago:

    1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2-1/2 year high;

    2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;

    3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%.

    Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006 we have seen:

    1) Consumer confidence plummet;

    2) The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3.50 a gallon;

    3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);

    4) American households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate (stock and mutual fund loss es);

    5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars;

    6) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.

    America voted for change in 2006, and we got it!

    Remember it is Congress that makes law -- not the President. The President has to work with what's handed to him.

    When your talking 50 bucks to fill it up, what another 2 or 3 bucks to run the good stuff?

    Just drink ONE less beer at the bar to make up the difference.
