It was detonating pretty bad he said. Should I run 93 octane or 87 octane?

Someone on this forum did that before i think and he just put a **** load of octane booster in it. I'd be careful driving it and would just wait to get on it at all until that tank of gas is gone.
Never just run the car till the bad gas is emptied, it is better to keep filling it will 93 till it dilutes out, and refrain from hammering on it for a week or 2.

If the car had 87 in it while being tuned won't it run differant with 93 in it now?

1 gallon Xylene + 1 bottle Hydrogen Peroxide + 1 bottle 90% rubbing alcohol + a cap full of mineral oil = awesome cheap octane booster
