Isn't that part of what the O2 clamp resolves? I'm guessing. Though lean tip in will cause your car to buck, much like a leaky BOV. Though your BOV is recirced so we know that isn't a problem.

I did a couple of butt dyno runs, more retard after 4000 RPMS, seems to be doing the trick. Since I am running 16 degrees Base timing, I should probably be kicking back about 8 Degrees of timing atleast.

Still doing the bucking thing. Could be spark plugs?

Wouldn't hurt to replace wires and check your timing (timing light style). I've seen both wires and off-timing cause this.
