159 2,4 Issues any advice???

I have bought the 2.4 159 as mention in my first post, but not without its issues!!

Was lacking power in low revs so I took it to a Fiat dealer to do a forced regen, which did help a bit

I also removed and cleaned the EGR valve made not difference so went ahead and got the blanking plate which did make a real difference (have ordered the dongle to remove eml)

Still not happy with overall power and fuel consumption(30mpg) took it back to dealers and computer is now saying injector #3 seems to be faulty. Car is still there having injector removed and tested hopefully hear some good news back tomorrow i.e just needed cleaned

Will this cure my feeling of reduced power in lower revs(and mpg) or anyone any other advice/opinions?

Check the MAF also, it can start reading incorrect and reduce fuel flow
