the catylitic converters get pretty stopped up and cut down on power... but change the fuel filter... and drain the water... and maybe you just got some bad fuel... i have done this 2 times in the past month... idk i was just throwing some suggestions out there...

Check the EBPV on the turbo to see if it is working.

Make sure the ebpv is not stuck closed. Unplug it and verify it is open.

Pretty sure you need a new MAP sensor. and here is the connector of the EBPV.

Welcome to FTE, I agree with ^^Jose^^. Look for a hole or crack in the rubber line going to the MAP sensor too or boost leaks from the turbo. The orange boots going to the intake manifolds are a known problem. If you can Check the actual boost psi, you should be getting around 15-18 psi or more. Look at the exhaust side of the turbo too. Black soot around any of the exhaust connections would indicate a leak.
