    Hmmm, first thing I would check for would be a split in a boost hose. Quite common really, after that, get the fault codes read to get a better idea of whats happening.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    As above check the boost hoses first.
    Second, clean the boost pressure sensor, if it gets gunged up, then dropping into limp mode under load is a classic sign.
    If you do it yourself, and it is easy enough, just be careful, they are very fragile, use a carb cleaning spray, and if necessary soak it, DONT apply direct pressure to it.

    The boost hoses are the ones from the turbo etc. They will be about 2" in diameter.

    While you are checking the boost hoses, check to make sure all those little black or white thin (about 5mm thick) pipes are connected ok, and that the rubber connectors are not split( very common ) or loose. These are the vacuum pipes and can cause the EML to light and also cause a loss of power even without lighting the EML.
