The page on the different calculators that support Ti-Basic says that an assembly program would make it run at 8mHz. What would that program be? Could someone provide with a link or the opcode?

You misunderstood; games like portal or doodle jump and other ones that are not programmed in ti-basic are most likely programmed in assembly (otherwise, they are in hybrid basic, axe, whatever), and thus run faster than ti-basic. You can't just quickly run an "opcode" and then magically have every ti-basic program you run after that be quicker. TI-Basic is an interpreted language, and if you could increase the speed of it, TI would have already done that in the OS.
Understand now? The entire game has to be programmed in assembly to achieve that speed. Hope this helps :)
While he wasn't particularly clear, I don't think Michael misunderstood this page, which clearly states that an assembly program can/could bump the processor up to its full 8mhz. I've never heard of this before, and I couldn't find anything else about it.
kgmstwo is the one who got it right. I apologize for not being more clear.
After IRC conversations with DrDnar, that page is mistaken: the TI-83+ cannot be overclocked without hardware modification. However, the modifications are trivial for someone who knows how to solder—just a single resistor replacement IIRC. The TI-83+SE and TI-84+/* have 6MHz and 15MHz modes, but no 8MHz mode, so they also need hardware modification to run at 8MHz.
