You sure your car isn't in limp mode?

Lets keep it simple then, do you have an amber engine warning light on your dash? if so it's highly likely to be limp mode, if not, do the paperclip test as RobbieV has suggested.

limp mode wouldnt cut the car out, it will just stop the turbo from working and feel slugish.

is the car running hot. is there any smells in the cabin. is the engine making any excesive noises. do you see any smoke coming out of the exhauts. is the oil lvl ok. is the water lvl ok. is there oil in the water. is your afm ok and plugged in. when you look inside the afm is there any gunk on the mesh and is the fine wire inside ok.
