    How do you know if your turbo's going?

    Just want to know what the common signs are of a turbo on its way out. my coupe turbo has done 39k and its seems to be struggling to get past 4k revs and hasn't got as much pull as it did. i have done a couple of search's but couldn't find anything really. cars under warranty at the moment so if it is playing up then i wouldn't mind it being changed fo a nice new one.
