maf sensor will be easiest to change but you could see if it needs a clean and try this first.
wastegate could be more expensive due to its location
That;s basically what the mechanic said.... really hope it's not the wastegate, as i'm every so slightly broke atm

I had similar problem. The issue is related to a popped hose. Either from the intercooler exit to the intake manifold OR the turbo exit back to the intercooler. Check for oil leakage or spray of oil.
I am pretty sure its a blown hose. Best you replace all your hoses to silicone type ie Samco etc. They last way longer.
Note - my ford hoses appeared to be cracked when i took them out to inspect. My leakage was at the intercooler to intake manifold ( split at the intercooler side)
I was hoping it was this, but they had a look at the pipes when it was in the garage, and couldn't see anything....
