Subject: Which Octane Gas Should I Use?

I have a 1996 SAAB 9000 CSE with a 2.3 Full Turbo (not LPT) engine. I bought it new last summer as a leftover. I've been using Mobil high test (93 Octane) but not sure if this is required. The manual says you can use 87AON but I remember reading somewhere that for turbos, higher octane gas is needed. Also, picked up the new Saab Catalogue at the NY International Auto Show on Saturday. It only shows accessories for the 9-5 and 9-3. Do the rest of us 9000 and 900 owners go without? You'd think they'd still feature accessories for these cars for at least 1-2 years. thats progress.
