Default Misfire at WOT under 4500 rpm?

I can floor it in 1st gear and all is well. But whn i shift to second, and wide open throttle, it will misfire. At any revs, in 2nd gear.
If i ease in the throttle as revs rise i can go floor it again over 5k rpm and its fine.
Have changed plugs, coilpack.
Car is EJ205 with JDM STI computer conversion, VF28, FMIC, Silicon intakes, Walbro.
I cant for the life of me figure out why it will misfire, usually in second, if you go to wot under 4500rpm.
Any help please!!
edit - boost gauge connected to turbo outlet, shows 10-11 psi.
Doesnt really go as well as it should.

If you're running an EJ205 with it's correct ECU, then this should have been posted under the Factory 2.0L Turbo powertrain forum.

Since you've changed plugs and coilpacks, another possibility is that the car might be running lean under 4500rpm and hence misfiring. Have you ever logged AFRs on it? The 2002+ ECUs have fairly good diagnosis capabilities, try pulling the codes and see if any error codes have been stored.
