The manual says that using the highe octane rating adds no extra advantage. And Skat is running a predator, which requires the higher octane for the advanced timing.

Just wait... it can only get better The new HEMIs get up to speed a lot faster than any of the other stock 1/2 tons out there.

I can garantee you the engine can remove ALL spark knock without a question. If you have a stock truck running 87 fuel it is impossible for your truck to spark knock. The PCM has unlimted range of compensation with spark timing. It is limited in valve timing yes. But spark knock is corrected with ignition timing not valve timing.
