91 to 93 octane, what a difference

So I have moved from Arizona which has 91 octane to Texas and 93. I did not realize that the power was going to be noticed that much.
With the 91 the ZL1 was powerful but a little lazy in some RPM ranges, while the 93 seems to give me power all the way through the powerbands.

My only question is, should I do the fuse pull like what I had to do on my 2010 SS?

Not to bad, staying at some friends house. I checked into work yesterday and I'm on call right now. They are updating all the things needed for the job. I'm guessing I'll be working in the next week or two. Nice thing is they are paying me to be on call. So right now I'm just getting things settled in.

For those of us in the great unwashed masses...............what fuse are we talking about???? Sorry, just returned to Camaro land after nearly 20 years without a Camaro. Sold my 1993 Z28 and now have a 2012 ZL 1.

Cheers - Boyd

Youre also noticing a power boost because of elevation difference. The car was retarding the timing in arizona due to lack of oxygen compared to texas. I say do the fuse pull, it wouldnt hurt.

The reason I asked is because my Z only had 91 in it. So the fuel tabel was set for that the day the first fuel fill up was done. Now that I am putting in 93 the tabel "might" still be reading 91. Thus the reason for the fuel table reset.

You have been doing 93 since day one so you should be fine.
