The benefit for a mild 930 would be driveability, or a more smooth running engine. I would expect zero HP gains and minuscule torque gains. Added protection against detonation is a plus.
What he said ^^^^^^

I never expected 1 HP from it. I just wanted detonation mitigation. If it saved me from one bad tank of Gas it was worth it.

There were claims of increased HP because you could fire off your mixture later thru ignition retarding, but I've never seen a graph to show this.
