I have 2.5" catback, tmic, used the OEM boost control, with CAM 2 100 octane (full tank, $9.5/gal), it did not knock.
I did not do pulls with it, drove normal and kept logging it.
I ran through 3-4 tanks, logged, there was no knock.
Took it once to top boost, to see if it really reaches stock over 18 PSI, it did 18.7 PSI, did not knock.

If you use CAM2 100 (make sure UNLEADED), log and drive without making pulls, you can log and get the answer from the ECU, whether you're OK or not.
