Default GAS

I have a turbo lite,

Would I kill the engine if I put 89 instead of 87 in it?

04 - Platinum PT 2.4l turbo

But, you don't need to put 89 Octane in the Turbo Lite, it's a waste of money. Your engine doesn't need it and wont' perforum any better with it. The computer is programmed to use 87.

If you add Stage 1 like Mean Green suggested in your other thread, THEN you need 91 Octane (or similar) to achieve the boost in HP.
