Well, today I learned something. Thanks! That's the kind of 'duh' stuff I'm missing from just not being terribly well educated about how turbo cars work when taken as a system.

I did pull the compression side air hose off the turbo and check it again today. It's not in great shape but I still can't find any holes through it. A few cracks but none that penetrate through all the way or even much beyond the outer surface. There is a mushy spot near the exhaust manifold but it's still intact. I trimmed the cracked area off but it made no difference.

I'll see what happens when I replace that hose assembly - gotta wait for some income first. The car sounds like a weedwhacker at the moment. I really hope that's it, this is getting ridiculous.
