Default Chipped or PCM'ed car owners (premium fuel???)

After getting the jet-chip PCM, will i require premium fuel? I have heard differing opinions on this. This is with a N/A engine after all.

I have the Jet Power Control Module (not really a "chip" as much as a "mod") and I run regular fuel.

Mine 'firms up' my need for premium. But I have a PCM. Different setup. I can no longer run on 91, but that can also be blamed on other mods. 92 minimum now, the car prefers 93/94.
