Default What Octane Stock 93 ?

Hey guys
I have a 93 stock except for exhaust . Has about 36 k on it
I keep it in SC
I havent checked the timing , I believe it is whatever came stock .
Id like to know what gas I should be using
I have been using 93 , dont know why just have
Should I switch to 87 ? Does it make any differance ?

W stock timing, I run 87. Putting 93 in it doesnt hurt it, but you're not gaining anything out of it

If it's not tuned for 93 octane, I would just stick with regular. You'd just be wasting money, IMHO.
