your mechanical fuel pump is located infront of and below the turbo in the valley of the engine. You will probably have to remove your engine cover to see it if you haven't already.

Sounds like fuel pump to me, not too bad to do, it can be done with the turbo in place just have to remove the bolts for the filter housing and pull it forward.
