How should the guy run the car? should he put it in a specific gear.
I hear that you make more power with the converter locked so would you just leave it in drive or what.
also based on my mods what rwhp do you think am putting down?
am going to be running 100 octane, does a higher octane do any thing for a basic bolt-on car?
Run it in 3rd. Locking the converter is DEFINETLY up for debate. But if you are not tuning it, then all locking the converter will do is give you a "bragging" number. Runing it unlocked is safer for the converter. I would guess your rwhp to be around 320ish. a4's dyno lower than m6's.
