Mine was having troubles where if you pushed on the pedal, it would just blow lots of smoke and barely creep along... It would do this for 20 - 30 seconds until it got moving a little, then it would start to build boost, and then take off all of a sudden.
I wound up cleaning the turbo and EGR valve and it has been fine ever since.
Mine was either a stuck open EGR or sticky VGT. Problem was intermittent, some days it would run fine, others I couldn't get it to pull into the garage unless I was rolling pretty fast down the street and drifted it in.
