Do you think they said that as 04 was the first year for the SDI and they were unsure and concerned about warranty claims? Or perhaps with the re-mapping you mentioned they were able to better control timing and detonation and felt 87 was adequate?The reason I ask is that the '07 I bought just needs 87 according to BRP. The '04 SDIs ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, HAD to run 91 according to BRP when they came out. Then when the 2 year warranty was up, they said yeah, you can use 87 :cussing: :bash: .
I figure since I'm not abusing my motor & running it on the edge, I'll just use 87 next winter.[/b]
After reading some BRP replies on the Ask BRP portion on DooTalk after the warranty period was up, I think they were covering their butt. They went from saying you had to run full synthetic to developing a semi-synthetic for the SDI motors as well.Do you think they said that as 04 was the first year for the SDI and they were unsure and concerned about warranty claims?[/b]
