Unless you are running a very high compression ratio, no.
High octane fuel is not more explosive.....it's actually harder to ignite & burns slower than a regular grade fuel.

You don't have enough compression to be running it, careful of the leaded stuff.

They also have unleaded high octane fuel which would be completely safe for 02 sensors and cat converters.
It's not necessary to use it unless you are fighting a detonation problem or false knock from the sensors and you want to eliminate fuel as a possibility.

I always run the sunoco 100 unleaded. You can run higher timing without knock.
Of coarse, I'm 14:1 CR now, but I ran it in the stock bottom end, 150 dry shot, at 27 degree's timing, without knock...
