Hi! welcome to TSN!

It could be (hopefully) as simple as an air pipe has come loose. Check ALL the air pipes, squeeze and pull them. If they are loose or take an age to reform, replace them.

Good luck!

Is the fun sound like a dead cat is stuck in the engine and is being put through vast amounts of pain?

Try checking the actual turbo on the inlet side......you will probably find the compressor side mashed or the exhaust side of the turbo gone.What is the age, what mk golf is it? Engine code/BHP please my friend.

Take the downpipe off to the side and inspect,3 12mm nuts or 13mm never can be too sure. From what you describe it is more likely that. See all my other posts relating to turbo issues with VW really will help. Fuel quality and good PD oil make the difference.+++
