Sounds like leak in high pressure side of turbo to inlet manifold tube.
Results in gutless or no performance but idle & revving in neutral ok.
Check for splits or loosened joints.

You'll need to change the distributor, as the distributor shaft oil seal has gone bad. Without sufficient spark, you'll have no power. Don't forget a new cap/rotor.

Turbo installation on 1996 nissan 200sx


That vehicle never came with a turbo as an option. Therefore adding a turbo would be custom work. You may find someone online who has documented their modification process. If you purchase an aftermarket turbo system it will come with a manual. Short of that such a document does not exist.

How white? I would get a can of carbcleaner and spray a little here and there around the intake area to see if you have a vacuum leak. If the smoke is real white like the clouds the you may have an internal coolant leak to a cyl.

Sounds to me like you have a leak somewhere in the intake system. The idle fluctuation sounds like a vacuum leak- and of course, when the turbo spools up, you have positive pressure replacing vacuum. Look for a loose hose clamp or a torn hose, etc. etc. By the sounds of it, you shouldn't have any trouble finding the leak.
