    More a question for Canadians or Americans who live in colder climates, is it okay to run stage 1 91 in the winter? I know that they usually put additives into the gas during the winter so would that screw anything up or is it okay?

    You should have no problem. The gas still has the required octane. The fact the air is so much cooler also adds a major safety factor. I ran all winter last year on stage 1 93 with no issues.
    Relax and have fun

    Intercoolers work awesome in -35C weather like we get in the worst of our Alberta winters! Depending on the car, some times they actually ice up internally which is not as good.

    Been running the Mountune 93 octane tune this winter and having no issues at all. I figured the lack of torque reduction was going to make it harder to drive in the snow, but it hasn't. I have noticed that my peak boost is rarely higher than about 9psi and most drives are not in boost. When the roads are nice and dry the snow tires don't have the grip to really get on the throttle, and when the conditions are slippery, there is no need for any boost.

    Well, then we have to put studs in the Blizzaks to get the best quarter mile times on ice, now don't we?

    Or just tear the hell out of the asphalt...and that would probably improve my streets around here
