Not warming up, No power.

Alright. Ever since i got the truck it has never warmed up. The guage, could be broken, but i only have heat for a second before it cools. The previous owner said the thermostat and fan clutch were both replaced. I'm thinking about replacing the thermostat with a higher temp one.

Now the truck seems to get moving, till about maybe 2500 rpms, then it slouches off and takes a while to shift. My roomate said it sounded like i had a boost leak when accelerating. I inspected the pressure side of the intake. Found no loose clamps, or holes in the couplers.

I did find a metal wire that was attached to something on the bottom of the exhaust side of the turbo. I have no idea what this is to, or what it's wiring.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!!
