lack of power!!

Well been 2yrs of trouble free,so I can't complain too much lol.
This morning the car started normal as it does everyday,but when I was pulling out into the Rd it didn't have any power, feel like the turbo wasn't there but no lights, wasn't smoking at all,was behaving like he normally does but without any power.drove about 3miles like that n manage to get up to 40ish mph n just as I got to the A3,looks like the turbo got back to life,drove 30miles without any problems n was pulling the way it does normally. I now went out on it again n there isn't power again, no warning lights or nothing. Not really sure what would cause this,maybe MAF or something to do with the turbo! What do u guys reckon? Would i ecu reset help?
Thanks rick

Take the car to your local indie and Run a diagnostic on the car and check the parameters.

I run a 1.9mjet and have had similar symptoms in the past which I traced to the small bore vacume pipes to the turbo. Worth a look

Nothing have appear in the computer display With errdoubl I should plug the computer just to double check.
But I have run the car with maf connect n disconnect, n it runs better like normal with maf disconnect, so I have order a new one for Monday. Have changed most of the vac pipes with silicone ones
Will try new maf next n fingers cross will sort it out
Thanks rick
