From what I've heard, with an SC, you don't WANT the TCS engaged, period. It will cut fuel, adjust timing (I think) and can damage the engine and/or the SC. We'll let the SC'd guys chime in.

I typically add Techron about every 10k miles as preventive maintenance. It doesn't hurt anything. As far as octane, no, it wont hurt anything but the added RWHP is minor unless youre tuned for it....

If you were NA, I'd say go with a custom tune from BAMA or Brenspeed since you'd come pretty close to a...

Maybe a few more symptoms would have been of help. Batteries often fail catastrophically while we're driving but you'll never know as long as the alternator can support the load. Shut her off and...

I'm sure Brenspeed feels that their setting of 6800 RPM is safe but I don't know and erred on the side of conservatism by resetting mine to 6500 as I stated above. I've bounced of it on numerous...
