Looks like it wasn't a lack of tuning related issue.

"knock and pings" is caused from lack of fuel and or to much timing

"had upstream o2 replaced 3 times" most causes is excessive temps and thats caused by lack of fuel and or excessive/lack of timing

Lack of compression could only be bad rings and or a hole or gaulded pistons , caused by lack of fuel or to much timing , burned valves/seat issues also caused by lack of fuel and or to much timing

Sure sounds like a tuning issue ?

Only mod is the intake. Lol. And 93octane ghats ethanol free.
