Default Turbo Question on my 1997 9000 CSE..HELP

Hello All,
I have a 97 9000 cse and I am experiencing some Turbo? Issues. Here is the scenario. When I apply the throttle and the RPM rises over 3K the turbo seems to lag meaning that I get boost but it seems to drop off then boost again then lag again then boost again I am not getting solid boost through the throttle application. I can actually see the boost needle move up and down on the dash, does anybody have any idea if this might be a turbo problem that will be very expensive to repair. Just to let you all know that the speedometer is not working currently.

Many Thanks,

Have you checked the obvious?
Vacuum hoses, Air intake hoses and what not?
Do you get a check engine light at all?
