I'm sure there are PLENTY that will disagree with me on MMT use.. LOL
I wish I still had the picture of an engine I was running lean with a head gasket leak. It cut through the cylinder head and forged piston like a torch and was still running a 12 second 1/4.pics of damaged piston from detonation...

What affects does it have on the 02 sensor? Have you checked or have stats/info?I personally don't like using additives/boosters that contain MMT (VP, Boostane, Torco) or any other that turns your spark plugs/exhaust orange. I prefer using "Klotz Higher octane booster" with no MMT..
Correct, not bueno on the o2.. they will do it for a while, then they will get slow to respond and then fail.I'm sensitive to this topic as I just flashed the WS200 tune on my 120hp buggy. I'm running the 91 octane version and our pump gas in my area is labelled 93, so theoretically fine, but who knows what Bubba actually puts in the tanks.
I'm wondering if a better solution than an additive might be to just mount a 35 gallon gas caddy on my trailer and swing by the airport occasionally for some 100LL avgas. Any issue with running avgas in these? Wouldn't mind keeping Sunoco race fuel, but just harder to come by it in my area.
ETA: Answered my own question. Seems the LL will nuke the 02 sensor.
Yes. Used the PV3 for the tune and intercooler, charge tubes, catch can and bov from RPM. Working on the clutch tune now.Correct, not bueno on the o2.. they will do it for a while, then they will get slow to respond and then fail.
You flash the tune with PV3?
