100 octane chip?

1039 Views 17 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  nmadd
Does anyone know if there is a company that makes a chip for our cars that runs on 100 octane? I know that APR makes a chip for Audi S4's that gives you the choice to switch through three different modes, including a third mode for running only 100 octane gas. Is there anything like this out there for our cars? Are there any companies that could custom make something like this? Thanks in advance:thumbup:

Many of the chips available for older model BMW's that run 87 octane modify the spark advance so that it can take advantage of 91 octane. The chips we have in our E46's are tuned by BMW to take full advantage of 95 octane (however, the computer will automatically detune the software if it figures out you aren't using 95). I don't know of any chips that take advantage of 100 octane. But, you can mix 100 octane with 91 octane to get 95. I do that when I go to the track.
