    Rough guess form a novice would be the Turbo or the AFM! Someone will be along shortly to correct me no doubt!

    The smoke sounds like it could be the turbo, the holding back thing could be a number of things .... turbo/actuator, AFM, BCS's, coil pack or plugs. If you know someone local with the same car, might be worth swapping some bits over to eliminate things.
