My car never had anything but Momentum or V-Power for all its 8 years to a ratio of around 30:70 in favour of V-Power.

My pistons were caked in shite at 68k so I find their claims ridiculous and for the vast vast majority, impossible to prove or disprove as they'll never open up their engine.

I've always suspected this. Any significant change to basic unleaded petrol with additives is a huge risk imho as you risk adding something that could potentially break down the oil and nuke engines over time.

I'm no chemical engineer but surely anything that can "clean" an engine could also change the composition of any oil it comes into contact with.

Guess I'll have to get used to using shitty 99 RON when I'm back in the UK for a week later this summer!

thanks for a very enjoyable afternoon reading this post when I really should have been working! My favourite quote "of course I know who McLaren is, I use their toothpaste everyday", made me laugh. For the record I have used momentum in all my performance cars and never had any issues.

Weren't Maclaren buggies the ones where a couple of babies had their fingers chopped off? I guess that they have similar panel-gap issues to McLaren Automotive!

Are you sure its not overboosting slightly due to the cold weather? toggle boost back one notch and see.

It’s stage 4.25 mapped by albert/linney
Should be boost capped at 1.25bar and the afr mix was shit due to fuel
Really need to do a log. It’s started to hesitate in second gear around 3k revs but then goes after around a second

Might be dodgy batch of fuel or water in the tanks, try an octane booster, a GTR will hit 1.4 bar if requested but most drop off to 1.1 as revs/load rise maybe its trying to hit more than 1.25
