Seeing that no error codes are thrown, new plugs and walnut blasting are in order. Since plugs are an easy DIY I would do them first and re-check under WOT. Maybe that alone is enough for now.

How does your car behave under WOT? Do some 2nd gear pulls. If you get clean, smooth acceleration I would just replace the plugs for now.
