    Any engine management lights showing?

    Start with the vac system especially the connectors for splits, then check the boost pipes for splits & make sure its all connected up tight, then take the inlet elbow off & clean it all including the boosts sensor, then tackle the egr...
    also throw a bottle of fuel sytem type cleaner into the tank & give it a good run.

    get someone to hold the revs down on boost while you look under the bonnet & squeeze the pipes etc... leaks will be apparent & split pipes are common on dti's

    did you clean the inlet elbow, the part which the boost sensor is attached...that too gets clogged up.
    AFM usually bring up the eml if faulty
