    Usually a boost leak will manifest as low boost... not 0 boost.

    yeah. That's why you're supposed to replace the pre-catted up pipe with a catless 02 sensor-less up pipe.

    I'm sorry buddy... I hate it when I get these ones right

    Now's a good time to get a vf series turbo!

    and i think the white smoke is cuz of the turbo seals cuz the tmic and turbo was just caked in oil and the turbo had alot of oil dripping out of the whole where the inter cooling piping connects. How do i clean the oil out of my top mount and the rest of the places that oil leaked into from the blown turbo seals

    There are a few DIY's. A lot of people seem to like using seafoam.

    but that catless up pipe has an O2 sensor in it, correct?

    The previous owner should have put a bung plug in there, and done the resistor modification to the O2 sensor.
