You can get more, but you better know what you are doing first. Here is a great place to start...

www.gnttype.org/techarea

Or if you want, just knock the /techarea off and go through the site..

That is pretty close to what you can run on 93 octane without going into detonation.

Before turning it up, you need a scan tool to monitor timing retard, and a fuel pressure gauge.

Then you may find you need race gas or alky injection to raise it from its current level. Hopefully everything is in good order and it is okay where it is.
