As of right now it runs 17psi and supposedly puts down about 270whp, is there a map that will get me anywhere close to that?
We do have a map for just those mods for a bugeye WRX. That said, a ProTune will usually net you a bit more midrange hp and torque, but we do have an OTS map that will work with your mods on your car exactly.

not all ots tunes are created equal. log, log, log! it is your friend.
It's hard to say why a car will knock without seeing logs and other factors like the overall health of the vehicle/sensors etc. For every vehicle that has the kinds of issues you are describing there are many more that don't.

That said, logging is always a good idea, it can tell us how well, or not, a car is running. We use it every day to diagnose issues or even to put fears to rest!
