Sounds like that could be early stages of the variable turbo vanes starting to stick though there could be other causes. Are you able to scan the vehicle for fault codes?

They can be ref. Chris's Reference Library article here, you want to be damn sure that's the issue before doing that procedure though as the turbo has to come off of the car unless you want to try one of those cleaners that doesn't require the turbo to be removed, though a degree of dismantling is still required. I don't know how effective these are though, I've no experience of them.
