    Comments about NOS/Nitrous Oxide Systems Octane Booster Racing Formula (12 oz.):

    This stuff is the best octane booster that you'll find at any automotive shop without actually putting a NOS system in. I have this stuff running in a 2014 Mustang GT 5.0L and add a can of this to every tank. You can definitely feel the difference. Even without heavy pedal, the car is just asking to GO! I also have a tune on my car and I have had this stuff rated at 6 FULL points. Buy it, you won't be disappointed!

      Comments about NOS/Nitrous Oxide Systems Octane Booster Racing Formula (12 oz.):

      Freind with a SRT4 told my about this stuff that it allowed his car to stay in High octane mode. I tried it in my Highly modded 87 Buick Grand National and I can run more timing with it! Highly recommend be sure and know that this REALLY does raise the octane numbers full NUMBERS and not POINTS. Whe you read the others and they say "raises 7 points" thats .7 not 7. Its pricey but worth it. Some reviews say that its hard on sensors, plugs etc. I used it for years and seen no additional wear on plugs.

          Comments about NOS/Nitrous Oxide Systems Octane Booster Racing Formula (12 oz.):

          This contains the most MMT and will raise octane by sixty points(six full numbers.) Can't beat that! What most people do not know is that the amount of MMT in this additive is harmless.

          NOS Octane Booster - You Decide

          By 

          from Williamsport, PA

          Verified Reviewer

          Pros

          • Does eliminate ping
          • Does raise octane
          • Easy To Use

          Cons

          • Colors plugs orange
          • Fouls plugs quickly

          Best Uses

            Comments about NOS/Nitrous Oxide Systems Octane Booster Racing Formula (12 oz.):

            The consequences outweight the benfits. It does raise the octane and it does eliminate ping, but when used exactly as directed in as little as one tankful, it heavily colors plugs orange and fouls them. One would expect similar deposits in combustion chamber leading to higher compression that will contribute to worsening ping. Not a good solution.
