Err, no flames visible on the video?

Hard to tell, but the exhaust does sound kind of muted - I think Oh Haha had a good suggestion - do you have a cat fitted? Is it the type of factory exhaust that routes the wastegate into the muffler as well?

Have you tried fitting an open pipe for testing purposes? Just something to route away from the bodywork would do.

Was that really full throttle? You've checked the throttle plate moves all the way, right?

I'm with the "it has to be something pretty major" group. If you hadn't said all the plugs looked the same, I'd have suggested you check the firing order.... I mean, EFI is supposed to be worth what, about 100 HP on it's own?
