Smoke from the exhaust
Smoke from the turbo
The distinct "turbo death whine"

I had a friend who had a Gen 2 RX-7.. I remember one time he raced a civic and i was outside watching it.. Everytime it looked like he shifted, black smoke came out of his exhaust, from that time i saw him race, he had to change his turbo because he wasnt feeling boost any more.. Another symptom! No boost feeling.. :p

But is different than the screech of an uppipe leak.
Correct. An uppipe leak will get louder as the boost gets higher, a bad turbo will start making noise the second you start making boost.

Have you seen any smoke? When my turbo went I was getting oil smoke from my scoop.

Can you take the turbo out to check if the shaft has any play?
