Yes I fixed it.

Yes I found the problem it took along time because the intercooler cannot be inspected properly unless you remove it. I had tried everything to put some poke into the motor,in the end I bit the bullet and decided to check the intercooler.
Not for the faint hearted but if you would like me to explain the steps let me know and I will type it out. Anyway it had blown at the bottom and the turbo had been blowing air to the outside instead of into the engine. Changed it for a used one from the scrapyard (eighty pounds) goes like sh*t off a stick now. Hope this helps.
