Great choice, The Bama tuner will definitely wake your pony up. The performance tune is definitely your best bet for daily driving. This tune adds power at 3000 RPMs and higher, focusing more on the top end HP and all out performance driving. The higher the octane the better off for performance, the difference between 89oct and 87oct may not be to much power but it will definitely be a little more power. Think of it this way, the difference in power between 87oct and 89oct power wise is the same as the difference in cost of fuel between the two octanes.
