I had the same problem with my mk2 , it turned out to be the turbo pressure solenoid that was clogged. I took off the old one cleaned it out but the filters inside had perished beyond repair, so I

bought one from ebay and its runs just fine now . just as a suggestion but if your mk 1 has one of these try replacing that. good luck!

Where exactly is that turbo pressure solenoid?

Something I found: http://forscan.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=880

I had this (unexpected) problem with (vacuum?) hose, probably not related, but just an idea what can go wrong.
