I am having issues when fully depressing the accelerator. In the 1st video below from idle (in neutral) I fully press the accelerator and the power dies. This situation remains with the needle either bouncing around 1,500rmp, or even registering nothing (below 500rpm?), until I lift off the gas whereby the revs approach something approaching normal.

In this vid if I press about 50% then I can just about get the engine to rev smoothly upto the red line – although even this requires delicate balance of the pedal.

This problem happens when driving. From a rolling start (about 10mph), I floor the pedal and the car will instantly respond and rev smoothly and quickly to around 6,500rpm and then die until I lift off the throttle.
Generally the car seems to idle rough. Certainly much rougher than my previous 2 Twin Sparks – which were silky smooth by comparison. The car has recently had the following:
(I have also performed a ECU Reset with no difference)
Both of these where done as soon as I bought the car and so I have no benchmark to compare to before these items were replaced. The car has no lights on the dash and I have plugged it in to the laptop which shows no error codes.
I have been researching this all day and I have seen similar threads with issues ranging from Cats, water, bad earth, faulty MAF. From these vids can anybody narrow this down a little?
