hi all,

just thinking about going and getting my car tuned to run on 98RON, what i really want to know is, is it worth it? do you notice any differance in econemy? do you notice any differance in power? does the car run smoother?

what are your thoughts on this?

cheers all:thumbsup:

no worrie then, what about a 195 as they had some stuff put in them (wouldn't know what but i know one is a roller cam or rocker?) and i've also done cold air and full exhaust, would that cause it to give a decent gain or do i have to sorta go full out with mods before it will show any affect?

cheers
