Question Kangaroo dooper?!? Help

Right then, we have a 2008 Dooper which has had an Angel tuning remap, DPF 'solution', EGR delete and K&N filter element, however......

It keeps displaying what can be best described as a kangarooing under hard acceleration, boost comes in fine and then power comes on and off like a switch!

No clue what this is but I can't sell it in this state and it does't show any fault codes either.......help please folks

Hi, air filter is new K&N for the remap and I dunno about the fuel....the strange thing is that it does't do it all the time. If I stop and turn the car off and on again the problem is temporarily cured......go figure?!

Sounds fuel related. I would start with the cheapest route and put a new fuel filter in. Hopefully that will take care of the problem.

Another possibility could be that the remap is causing issues.

Will try the fuel filter but the fault is so sporadic it's hard to think it's that.......thinking the map but they've had it back once and couldn't replicate the problem?! Very frustrating!

Right then........changed the fuel filter and no different. Only does it occasionally but it cripples the car when it does! Any other thoughts?

Did it start after the remap or was it doing the same thing previously?
