Why does your 1997 Fiat Punto GT Turbo have erratic idling and poor performance until the turbo kicks in?

usually the rough idling/running that clears when it comes on boost is caused by one of two things, firstly the AFM (Air Flow Metre) could be damaged...it sits directly behind the Airfilter/Airbox and connects to the Turbo inlet pipe. or The Lambda sensor is faulty

A faulty turbo is indicated by pure black smoke when engine revs are above idling revs and it can also be shown by poor machine performance.
