Make sense (HPOP)?

I posted in another thread about not having any boost. Along with this I have an oil leak coming down the back of the engine. After some reading, looking, and talking, I have a question.

If my HPOP is leaking and not building the right amount of pressure, will it also keep the wastegate open as a safety measure since there is not much oil pressure and therefore not supply enough oil to the turbo? Truck will still run and drive, but just no boost and performance.

No, but if you have a large enough leak you will have no power. With no boost, start looking for leaks. Pay extra attention to the boots, you might have one that split open.

No. Unfortunatly, oil pressure still hasn't managed a way to control wastage positioning in this modern day and age.

And no, if the user runs the truck low on oil and fries something, the truck doesn't have an 'auto-shutdown'.
