You are going to have a hard time determining if you have an issue w/o
a boost gauge and/or vag-com.  I would blame a boost leak somewhere
else in the turbo line plumbing before a "worn turbo"  but again...
that is something that is rather hard to diagnose w/o a gauge or

I would recommend finding someone in the VAG-COM database (linked
below) who can check your requested boost levels against the actaul
boost levels.
