    I ran that tank down to under 1/4 and then filled up with fresh 93 from Shell. It hasn’t given me the wrench since this morning.

    I bet it's that octane booster causing all the issues

    I would be willing to bet the octane booster had something to do with it. I put some in one of my turbo'd vehicles once and it hated it. The car ran like shit

    Got my truck back with the intercooler installed finally, along with new Methods and 37s !

    Truck still straight up hauls ass vs stock. I never want to drive it stock again. With 37s I'd whoop ass all over a stock Raptor for sure !

    Thanks for all the responses, so far no more lights. The only other thing I noticed was the truck not downshifting the way it should, I have nailed it a few times and instead of dropping down to the appropriate gear it just pulled the one it was in. I nailed it one time at 70 and it went to 7th at 2k and pulled from there, as you already know 6th will pull past 106mph so not sure why it didn’t downshift. It’s Still a beast.

    Remember 10 points of octane is 1 octane and the can may only be good for 12 gallons or whatever it says. If it says treats 12-20 gallons and raises octane up to 20 points, that means one can will raise 12 gallons 2 octane, not much. Octane booster is HARD on plugs.

    After looking at your data logs you had low octane. If this ever happens to someone again, a 5 gallon container of Toluene from Sherwin Williams, $25 retail, is 114 octane and that stuff actually has more energy than gasoline itself, octane booster does not.

    Glad she is running well again and I am glad you posted this! Now we all know what to expect when we are out on the road near empty and that one station is out of premium...

    I now fill up at 1/2 tank.

    Normal mode seems to do that, it drops one or so and grunts it out at times. You still have a Gen 3 Viper worth of torque available above 2700 or so.

    Are you able to uninstall the tune and re install it? Maybe see what Whipple says as well?

    I always had Shell 93 in it since day 1 and never normally run it below 1/2 and did that just to get the octane booster out.

    What numbers in the data should I pay attention to so I know when it’s pinging/Knocking and what is normal vs Problem?
