91 would be the minimum

Just save some money and have a muffler shop modify it for you

Thank you! Does running higher octane just help with the power then?

They have tunes for specific octanes. 93 tune will make more power than 91 tune

93 octane will help prevent detonation and knock. Depending on what tune company you go with some say a 91 octane and some say 93 required. Just check.

If you have 93 available just buy it.

^This. But this is the case because assuming 93 octane fuel allows for more aggressive tune settings.

Running 93 oct on a 91 oct tune should not yield tangible more power, i.e. it is all about minimum rating: once met, the engine is happy. Go over it, it doesn't go much happier...but go under it...
