i def dnt have 3500 for a new short block lieing around
wow.....

Definitely, don't, lying

how ever i did see i think the diablo tuner has an 87 octane setting any thoguhts on that?
My only thought is that the predator's base tune is already notorious for blowing up motors, I can't even imagine how awful the tune for 87 octane must be.

This has an easy answer run whatever kind of gas you want but like everyone else said it does say premium for a reason i wouldnt run anything but 93 but I love my truck

Wow I feel bad for your truck...93 only...take a few minutes to read your owner's manuals...or one second to look at the gauge cluster...please stay away from 89 too!
