What ECU are you using?

The throttle cable on your car looks like being bent quite sharply and seems to be still the original one. Upgrading to an Exige S2 cable made a big difference on my car.

The original cable is of rather poor quality and tends to stick. If it sticks only slightly it may be hard to spot. The drivability of the car increases a lot with a smooth operating cable.
Although the Exige S2 cable is not a direct swap it is not a big deal to adjust it. More details can be found here:
