I haven't taken my car in to get this done yet. Aside from the potential hazard this may pose as described in the notice about the recall, does this pose any performance issue to the car?

Looking to do this as well. I use 93 octane always, but for the previous owners of the car I can't be so certain. Any pics on the process would be very helpful as I would like to try this on my own.
