Hello, Inspect the Charge Air Cooler hoses and clamps coming off the intercooler. If one of the hoses has blown off, it will make a loud noise and cause a loss of power. If this looks ok,inspect the exhaust pipes coming off the turbocharger. If this looks ok, there s a good chance the turbocharger may have failed and blown apart. That would require removal to inspect the compressor and turbine wheels.
