Is it worth using octane booster in a uk car with SUL

Cheaper to install a knock link first, when you are confident it is not knocking you will forget about octane booster.

Very few people will tell you that you have to put SUL in a UK car unless you are really thrashing it on a track. So adding octane booster to SUL in a UK car is probably really over doing it.

Anders,
What's a knock link?(I'm not very
technically minded)

How about if the uk car has the prodrive performance pack ? and you are planning on driving it hard on the track.

prodrive power pack will run better on higher octane than lower. try some!


I have a PPP for sale!

Sunil what year PPP?

The knock link is fitted by BRDevelopments it is a microphone that is tuned to the frequency of det in the engine, clamped to the engine and gives a visual readout of the noise the engine is producing. I believe Scooby Sport can install them as well.
