Solved

I thought i would update this thread to say i finally found the root cause to all my woes!!!!

So after buying a new BOV and finding that wasnt the problem, i went and purchased a tubular manifold. removing the existing one was a pain in the ass thats for sure, there is barely any room to shove the turbo out the way of the manifold.

the noise was coming from the metal gasket used between the manifold and the turbo. i probably didnt need to buy another manifold as i didnt feel i was losing any power, i did as it was cracked however just in case, my issues were as i say the metal gasket as there was no seal due to broken stud.

so just incase others find this thread that need to do the same thing you should start by removing the brace bar, remember to reattach nuts before jacking up the car. remove air piping to turbo inlet and outlet,including both inlet and outlet elbows from the turbo, this will help massively in maneuverability.
remove the spring loaded bolts on the exhaust downpipe to free the majority of the load, undo the turbo bracket holding it to the engine, disconnect turbo coolant rubber piping and seal hole to stop coolant pouring out.

once you get this far get a second person to hold the turbo out the way while you wiggle the manifold out. a lot of work for what i thought would be a bolt off bolt on job.
