    Default Remap problem?

    Had my car mapped stage 3 a few years ago by Rabbid but sometimes in second gear it feels like all boost drops off, then in 3rd gear it pulls ok again!
    It was first mapped stage 3 at 450 miles, then i payed again to get it looked at with 1500miles by rabbid but made no difference!
    I changed from a panel filter to a cone and Went back and payed a third time to get it checked with just over 2000 miles and he could feel the boost dropping off but didnt know what the problem is!
    Has anybody had this problem?

    I thought rabbid were the "recommended" tuner of choice for most on here, take it to a different "tuner" who can check for lack of boost in 2nd.

    Could it possibly be something like leaks, sticking wastegate etc, rather than the map?
