Running 100 octane on a road trip ?

Ok, so i i was planing on going to a closed air strip, so i put 10 gallons of 100 octane in my car. But that didn't happen and now i am going on a small road trip tomorrow and was wondering if i should just stick with map 5, or could i switch to map 7 just for fun?, im not going to be racing down the highway but just for for some pulls . My mods are DCI, and 3" exhaust. Thanks

They don't water it down here. Still hitting 80+% Ethanol according to my flex sensor. Did have an issue last week when it drop to almost freezing with the engine going limp when I would hit 20psi. Had to drop the boost back to 18...

Have FUN...
