The boost issue-
Once you get the leaks repaired, it would be good to use an app to start reading sensor outputs.
You will want to see things like vgt%, ebp value, perhaps the turbo veins are sticking?

Hopefully when he takes it to the shop, his friend will run a scan on it. If not, then I guess I'll have to. If I do, I'll post on another thread for help
I didn't specifically look at the turbo, but the friend where we were using his lift, did say that he saw the turbo spinning. Stepson did buy turbo cleaner. I just texted to ask if he's used it yet.

Of course, unless I'm holding his hand he doesn't do anything.

You may want to keep it in this threas that way the history is easy to get at for someone that is helping over the internet..

Just a thought.

When you say turbo cleaner What do you mean? The only thing you really need is the 3M 1" Scotch-Brite twist lock disc.
Just be very careful around the posts. The disk can grab and break a post off. Then you out looking for a housing.
Not a low cost issue if that happens.

Turbo cleaning is really a disassembly and scrapping away accumulating soot, carbon. I have not heard of a turbo cleaner itself. Something else you can research, several videos on the topic.

Ford has/had a little kit. I think it was just the 3M disk kit and the turbo install gasket set and bolts.

I think he's talking Turbo Cleaner in a can, think Seafoam but there a bunch of others out there... I doubt the kid would even consider pulling the turbo and cleaning it as: "buying a turbo cleaner". Just based on what I'm reading here guys...

This is exactly what I'm talking about. So, to clean it, it needs to be taken back out I'll leave that up to him
