Looking for some help. I bought a 2.0 tdi golf and realised it was very underpowered so I got remapped think it was a flash map. Within a week had egr problem so got someone to come and do EGR delete and remap.

When I drive and go on boost if I stop at lights or something smoke starts coming out the bonnet. Doesn't take long before it goes into limp mode and I have P0299 error underboost.

Anyone help me at all?

Can't seem to find a leak. Would a request for too much boost make it smoke at all? It's white smoke and it really stinks too. The egr delete was only software

probably the boostpipe connectors that have gone weak it's one off those things... and they'll only pop out under boost...
simple solution replace that clip or the boostpipes usual plae for them to be weak is on the intercooler on the drivers side(NS) or on top where the boostpipe connets to the egr on the intake.

oww and the cheap solution is to use some self-tappers and secure the pipes.
