Question about 1999 Volkswagen GTI
Car semms sluggish and engine is noisey and turbo not cutting in
Contrary to Georgies belief, this sounds more like you Air mass meter is either Faulty/ knackered, new mass metres can be bought for about 70 to 80 quid and are really easy to change.
(Air mass metres measure the amount of air your engine is intaking and supply the appropiate amount of fuel, if your mass metre is not working correctly you car will be like a standard diesel engine rather than a turbo, car will be really sluggish/ very little acceleration)
Just do a quick search on VW air metres and this should confirm the above. I can almost 100% guarentee thats the fault on your car

The first thing you should do is have the MAF sensor checked out because the symptoms you describe are that of a faulty MAF.
Very best regards
