      Awesome release! Is 91 octane tune available and if so, what are the power figures?

      Also why is the correction factor DIN 70020 and not SAE J1349 like the rest of the tunes.

      Using 91 octane will result in a difference of approx. 10-15hp, depending on the quality of the 91 octane being used. DIN is a more modern and reliable correction standard today, and we've migrating to using this. When we launched Stage 1, 1+, 2, and 2 IS20, we had not yet migrated to using DIN correction. Hope that helps!

      Your site states that all the tunes above stage 1 are 93 octane. Can you safely run 91 on the other tunes?

      With access to quality 91 octane, you should not encounter any issues.

      John, I have the basic Stage 1 on my Alltrack....It recommends 91 octane. In my area only 87, 89 and 93 are available...I've been running 93. Should I just upgrade to the Stage 1+?

      If you're using 93 octane, you can use Stage 1+.
