I've had this problem for a while now and adapted my driving style to it, however I think now's the time to attack it. It was particularly present when exiting a roundabout in 3rd gear, at which point I put my foot down to a WOT condition and the turbo took a while to pick up. I believe it's normally around about 2000rpm when the thing kicks in but it kept waiting and waiting and waiting until around 2800rpm and I finally got the surge. I believe the turbo is working properly from 2000rpm but it always seems to have that extra push just before 3000rpm.
The odd thing is if I push the throttle open partially then the turbo is more effective at spooling up, rather than mashing the floor but that creates a weird feeling in that to get the most power of it you have to be a !Removed! on the throttle.
An EGR blanking plate was fitted not so long ago but the problem was there before then, so I don't believe it's got anything to do with it. The engine is the dreaded french trash 1.6TDCi.
