Ive used 100 LL *low lead* Av Gas in my FD a few times (mixed with 93 to Up the Octane a bit). The engine did feel smoother and probably not quicker (since I know the knock sensor isnt that much a problem). The only downside Ive heard , is it fouls up your 02 sensor, but you would have to run pure Leaded Gas for about 3 to 4 tank fulls.
