    Yup! You will know if you need a booster by listening to you engine. If it is knocking then you need to up the octane. 90 might be good for everyday driving, but I would still use the booster.

    im pretty sure you dont want to do that if its your daily driver. find a compression calculator online and it will tell you the ratio. could be fine but i think it will be a little high.

    i'd be nerveous as it is on the stock ITR pistons. your running 11:1 compression on 90 octane....in jamacia heat. its a scary, scary thought.

    i wouldn't do it
