correct, replace hose connecting to the turbo first,you can use a little touch of plumbers tape around the fitting just to make sure its airtight if you like.
I would leave the VNT for the time being, I doubt it's that, almost every thread I read where it looks as if this is the issue it tuns out to be a vacuum leak...it just sounds like that to me sub 2k lack of power is a dead giveaway, all the symptoms of EGR but I assume you have had the EGR deleted or blanked?
if not then clean EGR first and then replace the 3mm vacuum hose.
if not blanked and mapped do it at later date, but do do it.
almost certain this will sort your issues.
