The ecu is always adjusting for pre ignition regardless of fuel. But yes the more it adjusts the more performance you lose of course.

My 1999 manual says I should put in 91 octane (that is the US 91) with the minimum requirement of 87.

My 99 turbo has a compression ratio of 8.5:1

My 05 NA has a ratio of 10.5:1

Im a bit less picky about the 99 as I drive it off boost for 95% of the time. The 05 gets 91 or 93 depending on how rich I feel.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the 8.5:1 increases durring boost and is the reason turbo engines don't have 10.5:1 as a starting point? June

Effectively compared to atmosphere pressure, yes. So a turbo will lose more performance relative to its max output when the boost kicks in if it detects pre ignition due to poor fuel.

The compression ratio, formally defined, of the engine is constant but there will be higher pressure in the cylinder in a turbo, so it is effectively a higher compression ratio. Im not sure how much extra charge a turbo pushes into a cylinder - sounds googleable though.

How much depends on the car and how high the boost pressure is. But yes it seems googlable, I just did and found a bunch of articles discussing static vs effective compression ratio though I didn't read them.

I was hoping to get someone else to jump into he sinkhole of people talking about this stuff without having a clue of knowledge

It's a lot more fun than discussing vacuum cleaner vs broom. Oh wait I ride the latter! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: June

A vacuum cleaner is a turbo charged broom ;-)
