The fuse pull is for the V8 cars only.

OP, the faster you burn through the low octane fuel, the faster you will feel the difference. There is no "computer reset" on the V6 models.

I wouldn't go near this for any amount of cash. Buying a newer car as a shell comes with a ton of risk. It would be far easier to just pay 22k for a complete 2010 SS.
