LACK OF POWER WHEN COLD

1997 Volvo GLT

Hi, when it's very cold outside, the engine loose half it's power and I see the air intake hose ( between the aftercooler and the turbo intake) collapse when I rev the engine. It looks like the engine is starving for air. Everithing comes back to normal after about 20-30 minutes of warming the engine. Is there something wrong with the turbo?
