Lack of power above and beyond the typical lackluster performance.
Excessive smoking.

Be sure and check the pressurized hoses to and from the turbo to intercooler and inlet manifold.
Have fixed one that had a hose split underneath that wasn't in view, but was leaking most all the boost out the underneath side of the hose.
