Is it the turbo????

Hey guys. After installing the bulletproof kit on my 04 it has been weak like the turbo is not spooling but it is building boost on the intake side for sure because when letting off the throttle it feeds back through the breather. It has 4" turbo back straight on it and the exhaust has no "noise" to it. It's like it's just moving air. Friday it began to get a little better and had some power back to it for about 10 miles and it got weak again. After sitting for a couple of hours it seemed to have a little power back until warm again (not overheating eot around 210*). It just doesn't make any sense to me!!!!!! HELP

Mine did this on a 2600 mile trip from Biloxi MS to Boise ID, Turns out I had intermittent failure in my turbo veins. I had to replace my turbo; it would build 12-20 PSI and fall on its face and then it would just start working out of no where. Apparently, they changed the turbos a little in 07' and have extra lubrication from what my mechanic said. I was in the new stock turbo for $1200 with me doing the labor. Its a pretty straight forward job if your a little mechanically inclined, just be patient pulling it out; it takes some coaxing. Good luck
