87 octane
I was just wondering if my mild 350 Chevy would run ok on regular gas.

I ask because I have been using 93 and it's really hurting my wallet and people have been telling me that my car my not run very well on 87.

The specs for the motor

Edelbrock performer RPM intake
600 Holley carb
Comp Extreme Energy cam - 268/280 adv duration, .477/.480 lift
Dual exhaust

You do not mention the compression ratio.

With the info you have provided, you should be able to run 87 octane with no problems.
