Hi, from what you're describing, it sounds like your turbo is going bad. The puff of smoke is probably from oil leaking past the seals in the turbo and the squeal is probably the bearing failing in the turbo. Have someone power brake it and stick a long screw driver metal end on the turbo, handle end on your ear and listen for the squeal in the turbo.
