Unhappy Knock at Idle

I have recently been receiving knock warnings through my utec when idling at stop lights and when doing stop and go driving. I also am experiencing knock at low rpm 2000- 3000 rpm with negative vacuum when cruising on the highway. I have had the same map since I owned the car which I purchased may 2006. The car is a 2003 bugeye with a vf34 and full turboxs/hyperflow front mount kit and full tsx catless exhaust. I have only ever previously experienced knock at near redline with boost spikes on the track. I don't have logs of the track knock but I was hitting between 19-20psi with my tune being designed for 18.5 max. Anyways I'm assuming something a bit wrong is going on. I suspect that it is the knock sensor as I haven't had any cels except the expected 420 code due to my lack of cat efficiency which without a cat is no surprise. I installed the mechanical fix and now only rarely have a cel.

Please don't tell me to search I did didn't find anything overly apparent. But it you must flame do so. Also Perhaps this could be in engine managment but I am not sure.
