Turbo Problems!

I've got a Punto GT and im getting a blowing sound from the engine.And im losing a bit of boost power.
I've checked the down pipe-not that. No holes in the exhaust either.

Someone told me it could be a loose turbo or the wastegate in the turbo has gone.;)
Anybody got any ideas what it could be or what to do?
cheers!:)

I have booked it into a dealer but would like to know what people think, so i dont get much of shock when i get it back from the dealer.;)

Race me,I DARE YA!

The Problem Is That uv raced ur punto too much and the turbo/manifold gasket is now warped due too the intense heat generated by your turbo, this has happened to mine and now i have to replace the turbo or have the facia skimmed.
