Thanks for the heads up, I plan on running 93. However I didn't think it was too bad considering the aluminum heads. I used to have a LS1 with alum. heads/cam and the compression was 11.2:1 and it ran great on 93 octane. But that's a completely different engine.

I know the car needs valve seals, and I'm wondering if I should just get a cam kit for $350 and change my cam, rockers, lifters, timing chain, push rods, seals, etc... I don't really have the tools for precise measurements and clearances.
