Theres no point in disconnecting the the coils one by one to check for a misfure as they are wired in pairs,so if you disconnect one you disconnect a pair.The way to check for a misfire is to reach down at the front of the engine and disconnect each injector in turn,this will show up the cylinder that has the problem.

I have tested and removing the injector plugs made the engine run worse on all plugs so I assume that the coils are ok.
On the exhaust behind the first box there is a sensor with 4 wires. Is this the Lamda sensor? Mine looks like the wires have been cut off as there are no wires going into the harness. Couls this not be part of the problem?
