87 octane is all required for this car. I have an '86 N/A With a Pathfinder Intake And it runs great!

It requires higher octane fuel, 87 is far to low, it will rub really crap untill you put some decent fuel in it.

Note: these cars are designed to run on 104 octane fuel

The owners manual for the 1984 300zx anniversary edition says 87 A-K rating.  This is the rating displayed on the U.S. pumps so I would have to agree with the initial post.
