I just found some new info.
With multiple posts saying leaks, I visually looked closer and found black soot marks around 5 of the 6 exhaust manifold ports that I could see clearly. None of them look large but would this be enough to reduce my boost and cause my current power and smoke problems. Why would this problem appear after installing the new turbo. My old turbo had lots of power but would stick at zero boost however you could get boost again by pinning it to the floor.
Can gaskets be installed and if so how do you do this without sending rust through the turbo and breaking the flex tubes. This looks like a tough job.
I have read these leaks may be normal when cold could this be true?
