Any play on the turbo's wastegate rod ?

See if you can move it (while the engine is off of course) you could have a dead turbo, which I doubt would throw any codes or CELs...

Check your heat shielding in that area too, see if any of the mounting screws/bolts have worked loose and the shield is rattling around a bit with the increased RPMs.
