At the very least, removal and disassembly of the turbo for inspection definitely sounds like it's in order for this vehicle. Have a look at the VGT unison ring, particularly where the cam pivot travels in the slot. If it is jelly bean shaped, it needs to be replaced. Also check to make sure the cam pivot moves freely (no binding in any part of its travel). If it binds anywhere, the entire CHRA (Center Housing Rotating Assembly) needs to be replaced.
By the way, the EBP sensor on 2003 model years are literally there just to look good, since it serves no purpose. Ford deleted EBP sensor input during the 06E17 PCM reprogram on 2003 engines.
