I don't think 87 octane will be problem but I'm not sure. When my header was installed, I was already tuned for 93 octane and then I just got the tune updated for the addition of the header. And by beating on it, I mean WOT pulls and mashing the throttle. If you install the header without a tune, I would take it easy until the tune. Tuning is everything when it comes to engine mods
