Does it die and start back every time? If so, it could be a map sensor. Anything else it is doing?

On my golf gti the turbo is squealing wen the boost kiks in and theres no power from the turbo what so ever, is it the bearings?

It could be the waste gate that controls the turbo boost. Check your lower inter-cooler tubing from the inter-cooler to the turbo just to double check and make sure it's all buttoned up. If it's the bearing, there would be lots of blue smoke from the tail pipe. Good luck and keep me posted.
