No.  It was a different tuning company (Can't remember the software provider name - Kess or something like that).  As Celtic appear to do their own software I suspect they might well be able to do it.  Before I go to the expense of Celtic though (quoted £290Cry) I'm going to try a good quality injector cleaner additive (Hydra?).  An injector has been suggested as possible cause, I just want to make sure that it's not simply a dirty injector playing up before going to Celtic.  

 I must admit the hesitation on pull away definitely feels like a misfire although there is no loss of power when driving, I've also noticed that when I leave it ticking over, every one or two minute or so the engine sort of misses a beat - if it was a petrol engine i'd be looking at leads/plugs etc.  

Thanks for taking an interest.  Does this sound like the problem you had?  Any pointers would help. Anyway I'll post any results I get.
