Non-aspirated? It doesn't use any air? Cool.

(Sorry I'm in sort of a smart-*** mood. No harm intended. )
Ok, smartass Try "natuarally aspirated" or "normally aspirated".

Cowbox.......I'm getting freeway mileage of 29 WITH the SC. I have a couple mods that help it breathe better, which helps. If this helps with your decision......then GOOD!

Buy the SC. It'* well worth it, even on my tight budget!

Okay...what about the opposite side of the spectrum? 91 Octane is impossible to find...How high should you go? I've heard that too high can cause a corrosive effect...I usually do 93, as it'* the only thing that'* availible?

Default Octane Level

The answer to your question is that it depends.

Higher octane will not be corrosive...there are really only four levels ( 91, 92, 93, and 94)of "supreme" gas you'll find in the states (don't know about Canada). In the west, you'll find only 91 primarily in California where I am due to EPA laws. Back home in TX (where I'm orignially from) it'* 92 and 93 depending on the station and further east and north you go it tends to be 94. Either of those is fine with the higher being better in terms of performance but none of those will erode or be corrosive to your engine so don't worry.
