    Major loss in power, may as well have a 60bhp engine

    hmmm combined with loss in power I would fear turbo whine is failing bearings
    is that where the sounds coming from?

    Looks/sounds like you have a exhaust gas leak from the front. Might be a cracked manifold/exhaust turbine housing. Impossible to say for sure over the internet though. The turbo doesn't sound healthy either way. Remove the TIP and check for play in the shaft.

    Is there white smoke coming from the exhaust? Maybe you're burning oil.
    Check the shaft, I think your turbo seals/bearings are out

    looking at the two video's would you say the turbo bearings have packed in? started it up the other day. it hasn't smoked at all in the front anymore. a lot of blue smoke coming out of the exhaust though. and the whining remains
