    I read all the posts (that I could find) about the potential that upgrading to SX Standard at my dealer, might change my calibration ID and render my hardware from Utune ineffective at changing my tune back to use 93 Octane fuel.

    Which will you choose? I know the turbo 4 cylinder engine is not available in standard :mad: but anyways, I would opt for standard - I think I can live without a turbo :p I've always driven standard, and it's just so much more fun than automatic to me. So sacrificing the turbo, my Optima will...
