Hi, just an update...my friend reccomended that we remove the turbo and give a good clean through with some turbo cleaner and when we took it off it was mostly seized up with carbon when it was fully open (hence higher speed when the fault was happening) so as i say it was all cleaned through and the car runs as sweet as anything! :)
