sounds like a code read and injector recode is probabley in order.

with the new turbo car will probabley benefit of being recoded as it will then go through a adaptive learning phase once everything is reset.
makes the car drive a bit odd for about 100miles but then everything settles down after that and things should be good.

if code read reveals injector knock values above threshold definatley recode the injectors.
should cost about £40 at an independent garage but make sure the car stands for at least 8 hrs before they re-code the injectors to ensure the cold start settings are not messed up...

hope this helps
