    What have you done to your CX-5 today?

    higher octane (93) is more likely to maintain nominal power under adverse combustion conditions(and allow more aggressive timing, with less knock count).. in basics. Not sure about the 110, although the reasoning is the same, this engine doesn't rev high enough for me to want to buy that in a...

    High maintenance on Turbo

Also fwiw, my 93 tuned car which is wot shift...

    What have you done to your CX-5 today?

    Question about fuel type for 2020 GTR

    You will always have more performance potential with higher octane fuel as combustion conditions deteriorate, doesn't matter what engine because it's simply science. I guarantee that 87 dyno is way off if you are driving in 100f weather with 3000 foot density altitude (at 500 foot elevation)...

    What have you done to your CX-5 today?

    Turning off traction control for quicker start in the rain?

    Yes.. the power cut is excessive and you will lose acceleration assuming you have good tires. The more you explore the tcs/dcs the more you may find it counterintuitive a lot of times
