    It'll be either the coilpacks,plugs or ignition control module, change the plugs first, the cheaper option then look at the others :)

    Ok 1st thing to ask is, did it have issues before the remap & 2nd, I advise you to get it scanned with vcds aka vagcom or buy the genuine kit, from me if needed & scan yourself
