Leaded race fuel isn't great on the O2 sensors, if that's the route you want to go. The motor will obviously make more power on race fuel compared to regular pump gas but I'd be weary pushing the limits of the N20.

You could run sunoco unleaded 100 and be ok tho correct?, I think its branded 260 gt. Im not sure how it would perform on a stock tune given the software is only rated up to a certain octane rating if I said that correctly.

Your car will handle race gas just fine but unless you are tuned for race gas it would not be worth it.
