You need to determine if knock events you are seeing are the result of a mechanical issue and if not, if it is something that is the result of the tune. I'm not sure what you've done so far, but the first step would be to verify fueling during the WOT run via aftermarket wideband o2 sensor. If that checks out, then you should attempt to see if reducing timing advance in that area makes any difference. You can also test with some unleaded race gas mixed with a full tank of your normal gas to see if the knock stays the same or improves. These are methods that will help you determine if this is false knock or not. Some shops may also use det cans to do this. Not sure what you've tried so far.
