Hi I have put a new turbo on my mazda 6 diesel. There is no oil leak there is just loss of power as if there is no turbo. It's as if max speed I can get upto is 90. Part from that there car runs g

Since the power generated by the turbo depends on the volume of combustion gas generated, look into your fuel delivery system. Your engine might not be receiving the required amount of fuel. Check your fuel pump, filter, injectors, and lines.

If your turbo housing is getting flooded with oil the it can only come from the shaft seal on the inside of the turbo.

You will need to remove it and replace the shaft seal.
