Turns out the transmission dipstick tube is leaking at the housing. It shut off on me backing into my driveway. After parking it I heard loud sizzling. Anyone else had this problem?

the tuner did a good job of waking it up. Shifts are more firm and gained more top and low end. Haven't really played around with it too much but it's definitely worth it.

Spark Plug Gaps

I tuned my wk hemi with the superchips 91 octane tune. I've been pumping 93 and have been noticing a strong octane smell. Is it because it's not burning? If so should I change my spark plug gap?
