Fuel use with PI swap w/ cams 1996 Mustang GT

When you do a PI swap and install new performance cams, what fuel should you use and not use? Done the search but only found HoW To Do Pi SwApS on everything I searched of like a million pages.

The answer depends.

Any car with a tune which calls for Premium should use Premium.

A 96-98 model which has the compression increased as part of the PI upgrade would probably benefit from running Premium.

A 96-98 model which maintains the stock compression when upgraded can run Regular gas.

99-2004 2v GT's run Regular gas and have the PI stock.

If you are upgrading a 96-98 to the PI specs, you can choose which route you take. More power, more compression = Premium fuel. 99-04 tune and power = Regular.
