OK, I'll just stay off the pedal to the best of my ability. I just don't want to jack anything

Except for mountain climbing. Remember that in cruise, the BCS/BCA control the amount of boost as you climb so the RPM'* hold steady.

Decreasing your cruise set point before a climb may help keep the boost levels down.

I will have to manually drop down a gear or two in that cars. Thanks for all of the input.

I had the car around Anchorage today and it seems like I have pleanty of go w/ out boost in traffic. Ccrusing at 65 mph, I hold about 7.5 - 8 vaccum. I should be all set

If it is a series 2 supercharged could you just run the engine with the supercharger belt off? That way you won't get any boost.

And you won't have any spark plugs left by the time you get out of Alaska. And you'll have MUCH worse fuel mileage.

You could do the opposite of the boost bypass trick too, so you won't go into boost quite as quick....

it would be better to let the tank get to 3/4 put 87 in and keep doing that. I know what you mean though, several gas stations in the middle of nowhere small towns around here have one pump with one selection that says "gas" lol. some even have the old school gas pumps and only take cash.

I am not not looking forward to not being able to use the */C for 2500 miles
