Default Drive like I have carbs?

Why do I get faster acceleration when I roll on the throttle, as opposed to flooring it?

I have to drive it like it has carbs, every other fuel injected car I've driven would just allow you to just stomp on the gas.

I'm thinking it would be one of 2 thing's
1, My stock Cat's and midpipe are too restrictive, causing too much back pressure, but why would running at part throttle help this situation.
2, that car run excessively rich at WOT

I know it's is not the knock sensor as mine is all but disabled, and I see no activity from it.

My car is basically stock MY99 with CAI, and a Magnaflow rear section.

This characteristic is far more apparent in the higher gears.
