Default Loss of power and turbo

2005 Turbo 90000 Had code p0340 and p0344 I changed cam sensor. No more codes. It does not have power, especially uphill. Checked leaks it seems to have good exaust out tail pipe. I do not here turbo kick in. Will take it to shop in 2 weeks any ideas until then? Thank you in advanced.

Check for boost leaks. Put zip ties on all vacuum lines. Put t-bolt clamps on the intercooler hoses in place of the crappy worm drive clamps.

With that much power loss, sounds like the turbo has locked up, or wastegate stuck open? I have a stocker turbo for sale if that's the problem. Hope you get her fixed!

With those crappy worm drive clamps on the intercooler (IC) hoses I had a boost leak straight from the factory. A vacuum hose that popped off could cause that problem. When the IC hose popped off of the throttlebody my GT would run fine untill you tried to get on it with the turbo.

If the turbo is not working should I have a code? Again I do not show any codes. Thank you.

No, you will not get a code for the turbo locked up. But do the checks as others have suggested. Intercooler, vacuum lines, etc...
