Fuel filter changed?

On the turbo, look at the propeller and wiggle it to see if theres any play. And are the fins sharp or worn?

If theres a lot of play on the turbo, its worn and would need to be rebuilt or replaced. Far as i remember, the obs turbos are not ball bearing. Could be wrong on that.

What????? BS @*$_&#@#$

thats why i dont live in calli.

Yes that CEL might be the reason for no power. Also if the CEL is on, the engine will run at reduced power like its in safe mode to help its self.

Is there a way to bypass the scanner and do it manually?
