Is it a chemical or a brand name?

Also, in true male form, I didn't ask if they had it, or for directions to it.
I have the same question. Only I did ask, and no one has it...

I thought paint stores had it, like just paint stores, Hirschfields or sherwin williams.

I've seen that excel file before, i'll have to check it out again.

Two gallons of Toluene, and topped it off with 91, works great now!! With my 2.2" pulley, you could really tell the KR, but it'* mostly gone now...(Still get some KR on WOT...)

Just remember to calculate the octane of what'* left in the tank before topping off and adding more. The octane can get out of control if you don't watch it. If you want to test higher octanes, do it in half gallon steps. I went all the way to 95, but it wasn't noticeable compared to 94. That seems to be the 'sweet spot' for my mods.

According to the calculations, I put 91 into the 87, then the Toluene, I should be around 91.4 or so. Once this tank runs through, I'll just be back to the 91 octane (which is the highest I can get around here... )
