YUP,, no whistle at'tall
These turbo's have variable vanes. They tend to stick with coke (soot) or rust. Do you drive it hard or just on short trips. Shortie trips and lots of idle '= no good for PSD. Take intake cleaner off at turb and see if it is spinning free or any damage to vanes.

Probably not. It's kinda like when the boost tubes blow off. Either way the engine isn't getting boost.
