Are you setup for e85?

What fuel was the car tuned with?

I usually mix 1oz per gallon, but that's because I don't have an OMP anymore.

Basically, we need to know more than what turbo you have.

I use the Idemitsu premix, because it's made for rotary engines. But it seems the general consensus is that any good TCW-3 premix works just fine. There are several people on this board that get it from Walmart.

It also seems to be a consensus that you should stay away from the castor oil based premix because it gums up apex and side seals. But it does smell cool....

I use Motul 710 2T. ester based synthetic oil that withstands high temps, can be used in almost anything, injected and premix, JASO FD approved. It isn't THAT expensive compared to comparitive oils. I am finishing up some redline racing synthetic (little more expensive).
