Default Excess Pre-ignition in My '05 GT

I suppose any pre-ignition is excessive, but Pressing and holding the loud pedal comes with more than I'd certainly like.

Running the best gas and brands I can around here, but the 91 octane doesn't seem to be enough.

No codes, just too much ping.

PCM replaced a while back, and don't think I got unintended performance upgrade, so...


Thanks in advance

Carbon buildup in the cylinders?
