I don't know about the turbo running at half, but I can give you two ideas.
If it only started after the timing belt was replaced there is a very good chance that the timing is off. The car has very specific instructions due to the variable valve timing.
There is also a chance that there is a hole in one of the turbo hoses. One way to check for a leaking turbo hose is to put the car in reverse and set the parking brake. have someone listen for a large air leak while you power stall the engine. if there is a leak it will make a lot of noise and you can feel for it with your hand, just don't burn yourself.
DO NOT POWERSTALL THE ENGINE MORE THAT THIRTY SECONDS AT A TIME AND NO MORE THAN TWICE. IT WILL GET VERY HOT VERY QUICKLY.
DO NOT SHUT OFF THE ENGINE RIGHT AFTER POWERSTALLING. THERE IS TO MUCH HEAT AND COULD CAUSE DAMAGE. LET THE ENGINE IDLE FOR THREE MINUTES AND IT WILL BE FINE.
I hope this helps

I have the same problem. Do you have a DSG transmission? There are complaints on VW clubs about this problem. It seemed like an engine control issue but it is actually a confused transmission in my case. It seems to have trouble engaging and must send a signal to the engine to kill power. Recalibrating the transmission with VAG-COM made the problem go from a 3x daily issue to a weekly one. I have read that the DSG is very sensitive to oil levels. I am going to set mine properly and see if it helps. The calibration/adaptation only takes 10 minutes with VAG-COM

It may be a few different problems but try this first.Take the air filter out and try the engine, then.If its a lot different the filter may be clogged.This will cost zero but may give you an answer.Hope this helps. PS dont go driving around without the air filter as it will damage the motor
