In need of Mjet help

Hi guys,
I'm in need of your assistance.
My 1.3 mjet Idea has developed a problem over recent weeks, this is how its manifested:

firstly on occasion the car could give a little cough and momentary lack of power then was fine.
then the MIL light would come on and sometimes go off without resetting.
there would be times when I'd jump in the car and start it and the car would have no power at all, not a jot- this could happen at anytime sometimes not long after the car had been used and running fine.
now the MIL light was investigated and the MAF sensor was blamed.
waiting on the MAf sensor I continued to use the car, until yesterday when the lack of power was too bad to drive with a definite miss fire
changed the MAF and MIL light has remained off but I'm getting great difficulty starting it and there seems to be nothing in terms of power, to get into the turbo you have to labour it to 3500 revs before a surge from the turbo would help it on its way.

I'm at a bit of a loss now because its never been as poor as it is now yet no fault codes have been posted.
cant anyone shed light on this?
*edit*
now the car will not start half the time, just tries to fire up then stalls

cheers

funny you should mention that, I've a confession..............

18 months ago I had the car remapped with the promise that the EGR would be deleted from the map so went to work and took the pipe off the rear of the plenum box and blocked it up and refitted, turned out the EGR delete was not possible so had to live with the MIL light popping up now and again, yesterday prior to this problem I had re-enabled the EGR and the misfire appeared, will go take a closer look at the solenoid end today, cheers
