Would a 2.3 LPT tune to 310 lbs/350 Nm and 220 hp be fine with 91 octane or would I get a lot of knocking?

We get 91 octane most of the time

thanks

Thanks Jimmy. ;ol;

Hottest temps we get here are 30°C/86 F on very rare summer hot spells (maybe 1 or 2 days per year).

Would be getting about 1 bar/13-4 PSI of boost at 86F at full throttle at 310 lbs/350 Nm; which is 350 x 3.1 = 1085 air mass.
It will be a T7 Suite tune.

When I lived in Barcelona I drove a used Seat. :cheesy:

I have stage 3 and only have 91 octane here. Most of which is ethanol enriched. I've been fine thus far.
