I'm pretty sure Premium is 93 Octane, unless you are in the Mountain states where the drop down the Octane, if I remember correctly. Most places don't even sell 91 unless you go to Sunoco.

91 and 93 are both sold as premium around here. I haven't put anything but 93 in my 5.9 though, and won't after it gets the SCT tune.

I've never seen 91 marketted as Premium around here. Its not even technically a real grade, its a blend that I have only seen at Sunoco sold simply by the Octane, with me grade rating. They also sell 94 Octane, whihc I've been tempted to try.

your engine isnt tuned to use 94 octane. 93 is perfect for the reflash and anything less will give you bad pinging issues which will destroy your motor incredibly fast, as in a number of miles.

You're lucky that stupid ****ing bolt that holds the crosspin in the spider gears wasn't broken. It broke on both of my 44a's.

the original one did when we went to swap in my factory traklock. but at the time we didnt know we needed a case spreader so we couldnt get the open carrier out. so we drill out the old pin and put the one from the lsd carrier in.
i ended up selling that lsd about 2-3 weeks ago
