BOOSTane is the leader in octane engineering. BOOSTane Professional is formulated to increase octane levels up to 116. This formula provides professional racers and racing enthusiasts a safe and convenient alternative to expensive and cumbersome racing fuel.
According to the BOOSTane™ website, there are a lot of additives that make claims about what they can do for your performance. However, BOOSTane™ is not your average octane boosting product. Utilizing a proprietary, patent pending blend, BOOSTane™ Professional effectively raises your fuel octane as much as 23 points, up to 116, if you want! We took a 2018 ATS-V A8 with intake, spark plugs, exhaust and tune and filled the tank with 93-octane Sunoco fuel before strapping down on our local dyno. Baseline was a solid 499 whp using SAE correction factor and smoothing = 5. We performed all pulls in sixth gear with the torque converter locked up to ensure we gathered the best possible data. This method shows the lowest numbers, but we prefer it since it’s the most reliable, consistent and repeatable from dyno to dyno. One 32 ounce can of BOOSTane™ Professional was poured into the tank. Based off of the BOOSTane Mixing Chart , the resulting octane was around 102. We were able to add a few minor tuning edits due to this higher octane and the result was 521 whp. We then added a second can to the tank (resulting in an octane of 104), made a couple more tweaks and found ourselves at 549 whp. Peak boost remained the same at 20 psi. Ignition timing advance was increased from ~ 8 to ~ 13° BTDC on the top end. Net gains were an astonishing 50 whp at the top of the powerband with solid gains throughout. Also notice that the power delivery became noticeably smoother with the increased fuel octane.
