This is not the turbo it is the over-powering the clutch, it happens in 5th because that is when most worn clutches slip, it is the biggest load, replace your clutch.

Revs erratically


sounds like the rev limiter is kicking in to keep the engine from over rev damage, there should be a way to get the limiter disabled or perhaps get the turbo building boost sooner.

Turbo dont boost


Check the pipes from the turbo to the intercooler and the intercooler to the inlet manifold, one if the hoses maybe not sealing 100%. let me know.

Turbo kicks in better


Cold air is more dense, so that makes perfect sense. Also, a turbo compresses the air, which heats it up, so you lose some of the power gains, which is why intercoolers are so common.
