Community Q&A Question: Air Intake Octane Rating

Asking About: Mustang Ford Racing Cold Air Intake Kit with Calibration (05-09) 4.0L


Air Intake Octane Rating

Why does this one particular Air Intake require Premium (91 octane or higher) fuel ? Compared to the Air Intakes for the V6 why does this one need it? And if purchased could you use a different octane rating lower than 91?

The tune calibration needed for this intake is calibrated for 91 octane fuel. You can go higher, but lower octane will reduce engine timing to avoid pinging.
