    As I can know, if my GTS TURBO of year 1987, can use unleaded gas?

    ferrari used hardened valve seats that work just fine w/ unleaded. Lots of detailes in the archives.

    Dependng on your compression ratio & boost, you may need a high octane unleaded tho.

    any engine from the late 70's to present are designed for unleaded. i would recommend high octane for the turbo and the heat and stress it puts on an engine.
