I'm no expert but I'd check all the boost pipes/hoses for leaks/splits or maybe even just loose .have you got any smoke...:)

hi i have a car like this its not the pipes but it turns out to be the vains in the turbo stiking open, also creating overboost and some times it goes into limp mode ?check thr simple things first dude:ILU:
