As it was suggested,
Just see how easily the turbo is spinning using a straw.
Remember that when you shut off an engine with a turbo you must let it idle for a few minutes as the turbo is still spinning very fast and if you turn off the engine immediately the lubrication to the turbo stops and you can burn up the bearings in the turbo very quickly.

Eric, thanks for the reply. This is a Maramu. I repowered from the Perkins 4154 engine, but everything was working well, and suddenly it stopped kicking in. The prop is the Amel original three blade prop and two independent calculations showed it was adequate with the new engine/transmission.
It was operating properly under load but not anymore.
