Torco Accelerator octane booster
 
Been researching this the last few hours and am convinced to try out. Suppose to reduce and in some applications eliminate ping/knock on boost. These are the mixtures I will be testing as I have 93 out here. Will report when I get my cans in and start from there. And a link to the website.

http://torcoracefuel.net/pro-accelerator.html

(1 can is 32 oz)

20 gal 93 + 32 oz TORCO = 97

10 gal 93 + 32 oz TORCO = 104

5 gal 93 + 32 oz TORCO = 107

Yeah I seen and read great things about it. I'm running a meth kit that isn't running right now. This would be a great alternative to that, just cost a little more then Meth. But if mixed in any of the amounts I found, could last longer than meth at a track TnT. Plus cheaper as some track charge a lot for race fuel and meth refills.

This is definitely interesting

Please make a VIDEO REVIEW. Key word. VIDEO lol

This stuff is the bees knees!!
i use a little in the fuel just to ensure the octane is where it needs to be, or when i can't get 93.
also my bikes were designed for 95 or better and they LOVE it!
but you really need to be tuned for octane anything other than 93 to get the full effect.
great insurance for sprayed mills...

I don't really see how I could make a video review on this as of yet. Only thing I can see is using the Torque app to read the knock.

Yeah I kind of figured this. I'm tuned for 93 and Meth so figured I would see the benefits. I will post the findings.

This is what the Torque app got about. Week ago when I ran the test on the street at WOT. Will retest before and after when bottles get here. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/02/03/pasusape.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/02/03/upahadar.jpg

Yeah i plan to see if it helps him tune these boosted LLT's better.

It'll be easier for us to use this booster than for us to run Meth. Cost is also not bad as you don't need a kit to reap the benefits.

I have used Torco Accelerator for many years.. We recommend using it on everyone of our high boost applications as a mixture with 93 (Plus the methanol) when you know you are going out to purposely beat the snot out of the car!

As per tuning the high boost V6s, just like any other application if you are getting REAL knock retard you need to reduce timing. If you are getting false knock you can de-sensitize the sensors some to account for it. If you run 93 octane, at your boost level you should be fine without having to add Torco, just reduce timing as I said IF its true knock. However, this is hard when doing mail order because you are relying on the other party to listen for this knock that you are accustomed to hearing.

Sounds like me every time I do drive the car lmao. That's why I can't get no better than 18 mpg all around lmao. Got a good tune update from Vince this week mpg jumped up to 23. Now back down as I have a heavy foot lmao.

lol funny as I was just talking about this thread today. Waiting till track time to mix things up.

I highly recommend Torco. I use it at the track and find it to be highly effective.

Wonder if one of the vendors here would be willing to try and do a GROUP buy and everyone could save some $$$$. :noidea:
If your testing goes good I'm willing to do a 6 quarts buy. VP Streetblaze 105 is $78.00 for 5 gallons here.

I 100% agree! The only thing that sucks about it, is if you open the can and dont use it within a couple weeks, it develops floaties inside. Not sure where they come from. I shined a flashlight in the last can I was running and it looked like the bottom of the can was deteriorating. Besides that, stuff works great. You can hear a difference as soon as it hits the engine.

SC2150 04-27-2013 10:21 AM

It is probably the best additive from a can. The floaties and corrosion are from the water is sucks up like a sponge once opened.
