to clean the egr and intake side of things you wont need to recode anything. also check all the pipe work from the turbo for splits as any splits will result in a power loss and clouds of black smoke

you can use aerosol tins of intake/carb cleaner, paraffin or whatever you can get hold of easily really. a small pick type tool is also very handy and plenty of rags.

not saying that the intake side of things is your problem but its probably the cheapest thing to do first and wont do any harm

thanks stef will try this first thing and i will let you know also this might sound silly but what is the egr thanks tony

The egr allows the engine to burn exhaust gases. There is a pipe from the exhaust(or the egr might be exhaust mounted) which lets exhaust gases back into the inlet - great idea maybe but it clogs everything up!! So a number of things could be thick with soot.

While you are checking things, also check the air filter - might not be the sole cause of yor problems but it should be clean
