Don't use c16 or any race gas with lead. MS109 race gas is very good. You can run map #5 on it. IMO you don't need a custom tune. Just use one of the pre-set tunes.

Not sure what the whp increase would be but C16 has a 10+ point higher motor octane rating than MS109. Since C16 is leaded there's always a possibility you can mess up the O2 sensor(s) on the exhaust side. I had a friend who used to run C16 quite a bit and would have to change his O2 sensor every 6 months or so.
