Default EPC and Traction light comes on..

Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum.
Sold GTI V and bought A3 2.0T S-Line a month ago.
Car has done 120000 km.

Please assist, there are many experts on these forums and I'm in need for expert advise.

During the first week, I noticed the car stutters when I'm in a high gear WOT on low rpm's.. (In example 5th gear, 2800 rpm WOT).. Almost as if it missfires..

I took the car for complete 76mm stainless system followed by FRC software.
On the dyno the stuttering still continued, even after installing new in-tank fuel pump, new cam follower, new filters (fuel & air).. Changed the plugs and was okay for about a 2 weeks and it started again.. (Not as frequent as before, but still)..

Wednesday night in 2nd gear WOT the EPC and traction light lit simultaneously, and car went into a l/mode..
Disconnected the battery, and it was okay till the next morning.. Same happened.

Did a VCDS scan, with the following errors:

001089 - EVAP Emission Control Sys: Incorrect Flow
P0441 - 002 - Lower Limit Exceeded

000010 - Camshaft Positioner (Bank 1 Intake): Slow Response
P000A - 008 - Implausible Signal - Intermittent

000546 - Angle Sensor 2 for Throttle (G188): Signal Too Low
P0222 - 002 - Lower Limit Exceeded

000291 - Throttle Position Sensor (G69): Signal too High
P0123 - 001 - Upper Limit Exceeded

008482 - Accelerator Position Sensor (G79): Signal too Low
P2122 - 002 - Lower Limit Exceeded

01314 - Engine Control Module
013 - Check DTC Memory

01309 - Power Steering Control Module (J500)
008 - Implausible Signal

01487 - System Function Test
001 - Upper Limit Exceeded

00532 - Supply Voltage B+
002 - Lower Limit Exceeded - Intermittent

Message appeared on cluster saying battery voltage too low..
Bought new battery, problem still not solved.

You clear the faults but lights still comes on..

If someone can please share some ideas, will appreciate it highly!
