Run Codes, check the MAF, TPS, and make absolutely sure there are no vaccum leaks. Grab the intake hose going to the turbo and give it a yank, if it moves tighten the clamp. My car had those **** Philips head screw clamps on it so i found a hex bolt that fit and tightened the piss out of the intake tube. And that was AFTER I bought a new MAF...I guess a new one didn't hurt anyway. Also take the hose off the Fuel regulator and make sure no fuel comes out. If you suspect vacuum leak, take it somewhere that has a smoke machine and hook it up and fix anywhere that smoke comes out. Also check fuel filter, and take a stethascope or screwdriver and put it near each injector and listen to make sure they are working. And get a Haynes Manual and this...FSM www.carfiche.com or here...
