could i cause potential damage if i used the incorrect octane with the wrong tune.
Yes and no. Yes using too low of an octane for the particular tune makes detonation/preignition more likely(this will damage the engine), however the engine has knock sensors to detect detonation/preignition which will retard timing to avoid damage.
