Turbo Help

Just bought my first Diesel and I have a few questions/problems. When my turbo kicks in it feels like its pulsing and then lets out a big puff of black exhaust then its fine. It doesn't happen all the time but its getting worse all the time. Someone said it sounds like the waste gate sticking but I thought 03' don't have waste gates or the EGR valve needs cleaning. Any ideas what this could be.
