Should I run a little more octane with 160psi?
Just curious as I know these usually have about 150-155 psi compression, mine blows 162 mag, 160 pto through the gauge (fresh top end with Prox pistons)... should I stick with 87? Or should I be running at least 89?

Bro, @ 150 pounds I was running 91 octane. With 160 pounds I would run 91 and splash a gallon of race fuel in it. That or lower that copression to 150 pounds.

Hmmm.. aren't they about 155 stock? What octane were they rated for from the factory? It's only 5 lbs over stock I think...
I don't mind putting 93 in it, just want to make sure there's a point

I'd be running 93 in it...I realize all motors are different but I'd feel much better running that compression with 93...
But at the same time I want to say the compression on my 951 doo motor was around 155 when I checked it (but we were always running premium...)
I certainly wouldn't run 87 or 89...

Really man, with as much bad luck that has hitch on to your backside it couldnt hurt to run 93 octane. I was always on the edge at 150 pounds running the highest pump octane we have here in cali which is 91 octane.

800's have higher stock compression than 951's. you can probably get by with 87 no problem.

and how tight the squish is matters too. you can have 160 psi with .055 squish and 89 might be OK, or .038 squish and 91 might not be enough.

I run a Spec II pipe with 170 p.s.i. and 55th. squish on my 96xp... And I only use 93 pump gas. Runs around 1075 egts. So Don't worry about just 160....

Damn what to do lol...
I guess I'll try some 93 next time out just to see what she does or if takes advantage of it. At least gas is a little cheaper now
Good to see so many guys who have had or have specII pipe'd 800's, since I want that pipe later I'll have to pick your brains

My little owl 96 will run hard as hell to 64, then the new big dogs real her in, but dam there isn't a more fun boat to jump on and rip it up.
You need a spec II.
