Is this a bad turbo? would this be classed as a sticking VNT causing boost issues?

    If you can move the actuator then the vaines aren't sticking.

    so i've dismantled the turbo for no reason lol...
    Now as much as i was hoping it wasn't the turbo i haven't got a clue what it could be..

    i done a scan with vag.com and error did show pointing to fuel temp sensor. could this do anything to the power and economy?
    also can anyone recommend someone to do a full diagnostics on the car to pinpoint the problem for me?
    i am in se london.
    thanks
