Default Finding High Octane Fuel or Additive??

i dont know about anyone else but in NJ its getting harder and harder to search for high octane fuel, its like im on a search for fuel, its starting not to be fun. Does anyone have a reliable additive that you have used supercharged motors and now have to worry about popping one, that works i need to have at least 92 octance and i usually can find 89, it makes we want to get a pair of 525's, but i dont wanna scrafice the sound or speed.
thanks for the help
tom

Try the Amsoil Octane Boost. I know that snowmobilers love this stuff in their modded high compression, high zing 2 strokes.

Here is some testing that was done is Austrailia. The prices are a little off compared to USD. http://www.gtatech.com/news_au_articl.html

I have been told the ONLY add to pump fuel type add on that REALLY increases octane is the Torco Accelerator.

Good luck.

Torco, the only way to go. Very nice people to talk to if you have any questions. Use the leaded accelerator, I little bit more in price but a very good product. http://www.torco.com/cart.php
