So I buddy of mine is giving me this 98 K3500.
Has a Jasper reman with who knows how many miles but it runs pretty good.
Also has a recently rebuilt 4L80e in it and the transfer case has been replaced.
I had borrowed it a few years ago to pickup a bed for another truck I was working on.
Hopefully I will get it later today.
He said it feels like it isn't making any boost, I noticed a bunch of soot around the turbo which looks to be an exhaust leak somewhere.
Plus it needs brake lines, but otherwise it's pretty solid and very little rust.
Here are a couple pics.

Nice the soot sounds like what I had with my suburban. All I did was tighten the VClamp and replaced the doughnuts on the crossover that fixed all my leaks

It's leaking fuel somewhere by the tank, I see it dripping from the plastic shield.
Guess I need to drop tank and see whats up.

If it is leaking fuel. Air is most likely also getting into the fuel system from the leak. Besides the exhaust leak. Air in fuel will also cause lack of power problems.
