how to test for boost leakage?

i have a 2000 f350 7.3 turbo auto. i have had 2 other trucks with the 7.3 turbo and this one just doesnt seem to have the power that the others did. what should i be checking for? it just seems that the turbo isnt putting out enough, how can i check for leakage? any help would be great thanks

easiest way to see what the turbo is doing is get a boost gauge and let us know what it says at wide open throttle....

do you have anyway of pulling codes? there might be something there that tells us something....

early 99 cclb srw 4x4, auto, intake, exhaust, and a bunch of other asthetics to make it look better...


*SOLD* early 99 cc drw 2wd auto, PMT2 pcm with PHP tunes, exhaust w/ 6" tip, MSP intake, AD's, late 99 conversion, gauges, Terminator modded 17* HPOP, and some other pointless stuff like the zoodad, 6.0IC, etc etc....

499K original miles when sold...
