Angry Lousy performance `96 tds

Hi everyone, new member today and tearing my hair out!!!! I've owned my `96 525tds for a couple of years now and spent a good few quid pushing it through MoTs and quite a few miles. The performance is lamentable to say the least and I'm convinced the turbo is not operating at all. I've even disconnected the wastegate actuator rod to find no difference in performance. It struggles to do more than 40mph up a half decent hill. HELLLPPP!!!!:
