Default 05 GT Turbo conv. But Turbo isn't working. HELP

Ok, just bought an 05 GT Turbo Conv. POWER SUCKS. Drives fine, but doesn't feel any different than my 01 NON-turbo. Idles a little rough, but not all the time. Any ideas or help is appreciated......

Can you hear the turbo? it should be a no brainer if its working or not.
If not then your going to need some $$

If you hear the turbo but have no power check for boost leaks. I had a friend that had a huge tear in his lower intercooler hose, also check to see if you have some vac leaks.

Did you purchase private party or dealership? If dealership call them up and tell them you want them to pay for a diagnostic at the local Chrysler dealership unless they are a nationwide dealership.

Best way to check for Vac leaks? Soap and water? Is there a meter of some sort to hook up?

Trace all the hoses - check the clamps - particularly on intercooler.
