Don't the knock sensors kick in and retard the timing so it doesn't ping, even if you run a +2 advance?

yes, this should happen. its the engines way of protecting itself. but then the 2 degree advance was pointless if you just let the computer retard the timing.

you wont see any benefits unless you use 91 or higher octane
