I think 17 is about as far as you wanna go on pump gas...."Safely", I wanted to go 19 with mine but decided it was better to not be paranoid everytime I got in it and worry about lauching a piston

Agreed. Anything more than 17 and I would be mixing in some good gas.

17 psi is the most I would run on 93 octane unless you're going to get a tune with a ton of timing taken out.

17psi is def as high as you wanna go on 93 octane....I have a 17 psi 93 octane tune and a 21psi 100 octane tune...........I NEVER USE the 17psi tune

What do you do when you cant get 100 octane fuel and youre far away from a gas staion that sells it? Do you swap the pulleys?

Ok maybe I should just go w the 2.8 pulley on a stock crank that should give me around 19psi. 100 octane also.
