We felt sorry for them; They needed to have a home!

Given the number of joins in the exhaust, lack of boost (and "blobs" on gauge) could be one or more leaks between head and turbo.
Last "short" bit is favourite to go given its totally inaccessible position.

Also try checking "end float " on turbo spindle, they are prone to wear despite have a "constant loop" oil feed, however as they where an off the shelf turbo unit and not unique to bike there should be a specialist around that could rebuild it if necessary.

When I get a chance I'll have a look at what you've suggested (and as I mentioned I need to take the clocks apart to remove before mentioned woodlouse) ... just enjoying riding one again at the moment :D
The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory!
