That extra 1-2 make a difference at 12.5 to one. I know a local car running 12.3:1 use a 4:1 mix of 93 to 100 octane. But I went Stock for my build as I want to be able to drive hours to the track.

There was alot headwork done mainley on exhaust ports besides that new pistons rods etc fully balance and blueprinted bottom end. I would say there is more in her with the correct fuel but ahe responded nicley to pump and as she is a street car wanna keep it that way its spins to easy now as i did mention hp an torque have taken a dip downlow due to my ported head but makes for it big at roughly 2800rpm al the way to 8200rpm but lucky 4.10 diff gears sorts that issue out.
What rods and pistons?

Molnar rods Je pistons if tuned correctly u shouldent have an issue unless ur fuel over there cant take it but 288 cam setup actully bleeds compression off so you can get away with it.

Since you are on RHD what manifold/exhaust system you running? Also what ecu ? Why not take advantage of flex fuel that seems to be the go to fuel solution around here?

That’s just badass. It sucks I don’t have anyone competent with M cars anywhere near.

AA Prima plus. tbh i have no idea what kind of power it's putting down. it made 235rwkw on the initial tune, and then it was road tuned a little from there. Doesn't feel like much though - when i have money and time it needs looking at, just dont have much of either at the moment.

9psi @ 8000

sometimes it feels mental, other times it feels no quicker than NA. Doesn't seem to be related to IAT either, which would be more understandable. A few other issues too, hesitation etc.

need to get it on a dyno and get someone to tune it a bit more thoroughly but not a lot of people know these cars in SA and even fewer that can tune them here.
