Its ok now been to see Chris Gilly intercoolers holding boost so its not that thats causing problem.
Its a mondeo diesel I'm getting black smoke when the turbo kicks in either stationary or under load first port of call was a split intercooler hose but its not that got a few more things to try but suggestions would help if anyone has had similar thanks.
