Must be a field day lol. The 6-speed of my 350 seems to get confused sometimes with shifts if I try to open up the engine, or overtake somebody, and my RPM's are hovering around 2500-3000.

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.
