Verifying your A/F ratio throughout the operating range will eliminate that one perameter as a cause for detonation. You can then start looking at timing, fuel quality, boost level, temperatures, engine age, etc. Lots of things can cause detonation.
One thing I would do if in your shoes is a dyno run. You can log all the data while having you or someone else physically stand by the engine and listen for detonation in real time. A quiet muffler will help (obviously).
