Unhappy Loss of power intermittent when accel

Truck in question is 03 f-250 6.0 auto 4x4 132 000 Km. Have been reading all the old posts and searching on different forums for info on my problem. When i accelerate or am driving normal i get a loss of boost,or power with little to no drop in RPM, and get the flutter coming out the intake noise. From everything i have read, i narrowed it down to either the turbo vanes sticking, or maybe the egr valve being coked. So removed and cleaned the egr, it didn't look too bad, and also got the kit from IH and removed and cleaned the turbo as per directions. Coated everything in a thin coat of anti-seize and re-assembled and re-installed (the unison ring spun freely when i took it apart and didn't seem to be that rusted or carboned up). i re-set the KAM and truck was good for 2 days, now doing the same f-ing thing. The only thing left i might try is the VGT solenoid, But i hear they are quite expensive. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks Dan.

no, no damage to the turbo. everything spins freely and there was very little corrosion on the housing, and little to no carbon build up on the vanes and unison ring, but i cleaned them real good any way. i don't know if maybe the Injection pressure sensor is acting up? or the vgt actuator solanoid is messed up. i really have no diagnostic equipment to test these so just wondering how to tell what is wrong

possibly the map? i looked it up, it seems it is only a 30-40$ part, so it probably wouldn't hurt to pick one up. if it was faulty would it send the wrong signal to the pcm and then mess up the function of the vgt actuator?
