    Driving from Atlanta to Denver with a Tune

    I am relocating from Atlanta to Denver in March and I currently have a 93 OTS Stage 1 tune from MAPerformance.

    Just wondering as I arrive to Denver with the decreased octane and increased altitude should I just go back to the stock tune for the trip, or at the most go to the stage 1 OTS Cobb map for the correct octane.

    What do you guys think?

    I wouldnt worry too much I was able to drive from NJ to TX and found 93 the entire drive. Though the high altitude part is something I am not too sure about. I say stick to the tune just dont womp on the car too much.

    Better safe than sorry. The higher altitude will help. From what I hear 91 octane at 5000ft is pretty close to 93 octane at sea level. But if it were me, I'd still run the tune for the gas octane rating it was designed for. Does MAPerformance have an OTS map for 91 octane?

    Hats off to MAPerformance, I told them I was moving to Denver and they are sending me an updated map for the correct octane.
