i was wonderin if i would need to rejet if i added some octane booster to my gas, i currently can only get 92, but was thinkin maybe a mix like 97 or 100 might help it run cleaner and crisper

With proper jetting it should run fine on 92. You'll have to try it out using the booster. You may or may not have to rejet.

Be careful, some of that booster stuff is rough on the rubber and plastic parts.
