I agree, but were they blaming it on the previous owner or did someone fill up with 87 accidentally? Still, there's no excuse for a shop to blow up a motor, especially with a damn greddy kit.

I'm not sure the source of the 87 but either way if you're going to push something that hard don't you think you would be sure of what gas is in it.

U right. I'm pretty sure while tuning it they could've seen all the knocking. It probably was filled with 87 by the dealer.

You guys think the install with a greddy kit isn't too bad? I'm planning to install it with my friend(which is a mechanic) he has worked with all the b and h series with the older models

You should be alright, easier if you have a spare oil pan to tap into.

I did, I don't think it makes a big difference but it's not an expensive thing to get.
