Yeah whether or not you have the I pcm or stock, your computer thinks some % of exhaust gas is being sucked in during partial throttle. Exhaust gas lowers combustion temps since it displaces air. This also allows for more timing. But without the exhuast gas the timing is too advanced. And your increased compression ratio also raises combustion temps. So the two together may be giving you your condition.
So assuming you don't have a vac leak, you may want to back the timing down at partial throttle.
