Just passing on what I've found in the various sources.

Heeey ... I think that was me you were quoting.

I only meant that it would allow more advance in terms of knock because of the higher octane. I think I posted that in response to what someone said about tuning it under load ... but I might be mistaken.

This is a very good thread. I love threads with pages of technical information.
