Cry Like A Baby 159 1.9 Stage 1 Remap- Power & Economy Loss

Hey fellas,
I had my 159 1.9 jtdm auto remapped about a month ago- pulled out the DPF and replaced with a straight pipe, blocked off the EGR.
I had a remap done for me online by a popular site and was expecting power gains and minor economy gains but both seem to have decreased-
it's having trouble getting up hills in 5th & 6th gear, and the fuel economy has decreased about 10%.
Just wondering if anyone has had a 1.9 remapped and can share their results? Or has anyone had their EGR and DPF mapped out without any other tuning done and could share their results?

EGR+DPF need special live tune due to different intake-exhaust flow. Probably your remap is ok but EGR-DPF off only without other necessary work.

You can test it, log your car injection-boost parameters and you will see overboost and other issues.

Had similar one, 1.9, DPF&EGR OFF, SWIRL OFF. All three things was deleted from ECU. Also bit remaped, economy is +- same, but throttle response & power in higher RPMs is noticibly better.
Get your car to some company, donīt do it online for god....
