I pulled the neg battery cable and dropped some octane booster in the tank. The only gas station that had e85 around me is gone now. Gonna hit the highway here in a bit and see if there's any improvement.

You would have to dump like 10 of those bottles in there to make any difference.... Most only raise it by .1 or so.... not the "8pts" they advertise.

Good luck.

DAM is back at a constant 16 after going to reg stage1 91oct map. No more knock events on WOT either. Found some e85 in the next town over I'll have to pay a visit to. As for the octane booster....guys... This one had a super official and shiny label that PROMISED a solid boost....

What is this thing? It looks like some sort of T-splitter. Could this cause issues?

That's a normal place to put a T to run a line to a boost gauge. If you don't have a boost gauge or one end is open you need to plug it or just run it straight without the T. You normally have that hose hooked into the bpv right, not just disconnected like in the pic?

Looks like the crazy owner just filled it with silicone.

Run the line without the T as Adair stated.... Might help if it's seeing merc.

Yeah I unplugged it (from bpv) trying to see around it. I can see a mark on the IC where its pushing air through the open end. Hose connector purchase tomorrow!
