1) alot if on a stock truck.
2)Lots of smoke and no power, also no boost if guage equipped.
3)exhaust leak or boost leak. if exhaust look for sooty deposits at the up pipe joints on the firewall and the back of the block it exhaust leaks post turbo may sound funny but not really affect performance. Boost leak usually a loud wooshy sound possibly even feel it with your habd around boots or charge air cooler end tanks.

I could be way off but I think that is the basics.
