yeah you can you racing gas and it'll safely work .Booster are ok but only raises the octane level by one so you'll have to use like10 of em to have an effect and you do that you burn out you cat and cost you more money but beware c116 is not cheap but a nice price for a night at the track

Anything over the octane required for the car is a waste of money.

yes sunco has a 104 octane unleaded. manganese tricarbonol seems the new popular booster and seems to be fairly effective though ive not read too much about it. toluene is the main octane booster of choice but its costly. its already in your gas often if its premium. you can just buy it from a paint store and dump it in your self but its about 20 $ a gallon. 104 octane was 9 $ a gallon last i checked. whatever you do just find out the min # you need and use that. beware there are 3 "methods" to test octane, the research, the motor, and the pump. research is for rich mixes, motor for chemically correct, and pump for the mean between the 2. good luck racing!
