Big problem help

Just picked up my alfa romeo 147 1.9 8v jtd and the car did 150 mile then a noise developed like a jet taking off when accelerating above 2000 rpm when turbo kicks in essentially. It def has lost power any ideas? Is it the turbo pipes r could it be the turbo?

hopefully it isnt the turbo itself. Did you buy from a private seller?

Get under the car and peer up through a small inspection hole in the undertray in the front nearside corner. You should see a black hose as thick as your arm. This hose connects the turbo to the intercooler and it fouls on a stud which eventually wears a hole in it, this is almost certainly the cause of your wooshing noise.

All the best
