I think possibly the best thing to do is to get the car on a Dyno (shouldn't cost too much) and get a log of your AFRs and Boost Pressures against RPM.

Yes, use high-octane fuel if you can get it.

Racing Porsche 935s used to run at around 1.4Bar - but their engines only had to get to the end of the race. Generally accepted that 1.0Bar should be okay, but much more than that and you are going to shorten the life span.
