So I Recently got the build specs on my motor. Compression is 7 to 1. 671 blower, 34 pulley top and bottom. (I do not have a boost gauge). I run race gas 110 octane. I think I'm wasting money on high-octane fuel. My question is will be okay running 91 octane?

You should be able to run 12 lbs of boost no problem on 91 octane.

I have a comparable deal but never felt that I could go down on octane enough to make enough difference in price for the added piece of mind of just running what my builder told me to. I have heard mixed opinion about blending gasolines so I always shyed away from that too. I'm not an expert but I do think you're probably right about your situation. If it were me I would buy the same gas and spin the blower a little harder and make the extra power. :)devil
