    there are a lot of things that can cause this. have you access to vag-com to start with? would be worth a fault scan. If not post up in the vcds forum for a member in your area to help. why was the turbo changed? are you sure this wasnt happening before the turbo was changed. can you give us a bit more info as in engine code, mileage, service history.....

    sorry the car is 2003 and manual the turbo was replaced because it blew.I have had the car on a computer and nothing showed up.The has a full history looks and drove like a new car until the turbo blew and was replaced with a new one.I have told the garage but of all 3 garages plus audi nobody can find a fault

    is there any chance they could have put the wrong turbo on it one with less power or some thing just stapping in the dark ;-)

    my guess is going to be Boost leak... if your turbo blew.. could their be parts of turbine in your intercooler pipework? could it need a remap?

    check all your intercooler pipework, check your EGR valve, and try getting it remapped.

    have you any Plooms of black smoke out the back? ect ect could it be a failing fuel pump? dodgy injectors..

    after that i am all out of ideas...

    can i also ask how did you remove the 3 cats and how does it sound ;)
