No wont make power on motor! We had a 3mil stroker with s head on it idk how big the stroke was but it made 168 on q16 made real good power on spray but too much octane to burn on motor. Mr12 or MRX01, even U4.4 (my bike didn't make great power on U4)

Yeah, Q16 is better for high compression motors. I run C85 and have had good success with it. I pay $60 for five gallons. I tried MR12 and didn't like it, plus it is $150 for five gallons, plus you have to drain it after every track day.

my bike was tuned on MRX01 we didn't have to add any timing, I put some MR12 in and added 3% or 5% more fuel it ran faster but I didn't like the noise
