This is the correct question to be asking. It's compression ratio that determines the octane you need to run more than cam timing. I ran that same cam in my pro-street 41 but I also had 9.5 compression. I used regular gas and threw in half a can of octane boost every in every tank, although I probably didn't need it. Never had any pinging that way though.
