Turbo Oil Seals Bad?

While towing a 10K lb trailer from Washington to AK, I noticed some odd goings on with my truck. When I reached hills that forced the truck to downshift to 3rd, and RPMS would jump to 2800 or so, I was hearing a rapid "whoosh whoosh whoosh" sound coming from ahead of the firewall either near the center or on the passenger side. I also noticed some shuddering/surging that seemed to be tied to the sound. This noise seemed to occur anytime the RPMS climbed well into the 2K range, up or down hill. I also noticed once I reached AK some oil seeping from the driver side CAC boot. Not sure if the two issues are related.

I am wondering if I have an issue with the turbos, or possibly with the turbos and transmission. Transmission was not happy in 3rd at all, seemed to not put the power to the ground, like TC was never locked. 4th and 5th felt great...

Lots of text, but I am hoping someone might have some insight for me?

Thanks for suffering through my rambling explanation!

Not sure about your turbo seals but I'm pretty sure you TC won't lock in third.

Mine has always felt very week in third unless I'm doing a full throttle run. It seems like it just revs hi and has no power in third

The oil in the intercooler boots is normal because of the CCV system. Are you producing less boost? Check the intercooler boots for cracks. It is possible you have a boost leak.

I did not have any issues pegging the boost guage in the dash at 40 psi. I will check the boots for cracks though.

Any thoughts on the noise? I know "whoosh whoosh" doesn't tell you much lol. In fact, I think the noise was more of a rapid "tsssh Tsssh Tsssh" anyway

The noise is why checking the boots for leaks is mentioned. It can make a lot of noise even if its a small leak and you are still making boost. look at the oil you saw, does it look like it was blown out by air or just seeped past?

The oil was at the joint between the boot and pipe, so I would have to say seeped, but it is kinda hard to tell. I will dig into it and see if I can see any damage to the boots.
