Agreed.

Maybe I can help... Higher octane gas actually has slower more controlled burn characteristics and is designed for engines with higher compression and or more advanced timing. Running 91 octane gas when the engine was designed around a faster burning (89 octane) fuel, will technically slow it down, unless its tuned (advanced timing, etc) for that octane rating. Although I'm not an expert, so I may not be 100% correct on this.

Chris is right hands down you will smoke any make or model truck in your town. Besides that your ECM is programmed to burn 87 octane most all cars today are minus high end and really high performance such as a vet or so forth. Now if you want to feel the true power get a tuner and dial down the torque management. Then you will get that wow factor you looking for.

There's a lot of human error involved when trying to time yourself. I wouldn't worry about it, or even post a number unless you had an accurate device, or timeslip.
