Id say first look at all of you intecooler piping and make sure you dont have a torn or loose coupler then if you cant find anything pull the intake boot of the turbo and look at the compressor wheel if you don't not see damage feel for excessive shaft play in the turbo.

cleaning the turbo

If it is indeed the turbo needing cleaning, here's a good link for that:

If you have the money to pay for your mistakes, i'd say the best way to learn is just do it. First eliminate all other possibilities, then work on the most possible reasons for the problem. If its the turbo, you can remove it and try to clean it. for a sticking turbo, i've blocked off the exhaust to the EGR cooler and use a cetane boost in my fuel.
