Will higher octane help?

I'm running 91 octane (thats the highest we have) for my 406, It has 210 cranking pressure
& the compression is 10.4.

Will it benefit with higher octane or even a 50/50 mix of 110/91??

The timing is set at 35-36*

With a 10+:1 c.r., sure. Higher octane is always a plus in a performance oriented non-computer controlled n/a motor.

It won't "help" but will ensure that the fuel octane is high enough to avoid detonation,
which never ends well.
