    I've tried 93 in my 2014 3.7L and really can't tell any difference in it and regular. To see any real improvement in power, evidently there is something that has to be done.

    Me personally. If im changing the type of fuel im putting in then id go as far as changing th fuel pump, fuel filter, rails, and injectors. I would also go as far as maybe upgrading my air intake with a K&N or something along those lines. And yes plugs, wires and coils. Spark, Fuel and Air all work together obviously to make your engine go boom, so if you upgrade one, you migjt as well upgrade the others. But like CaptainEddie said, theres not that much of a difference Horsepower wise. Possibly more fuel efficient unless you do a complete upgrade

    K & N wet filters can foil your Mass Air Glow sensor over time uf you dont clean it.

    I ran the BEST gas I could find in my area for about 6 months, then I went to fill my tank on day and thought ,"screw it" and put regular in. To me, my 11 seemed to run better. Faster take off's, pick up's, and just seemed to run smoother. My son noticed the difference too.
