when i put my foot down on my pd130 i get a loud screeching when on full boost the only way i can describe it is it sounds like a fanbelt slipping could this be a boost leak or something else?[*-)]

look for the big pipe that comes from the turbo(back of engine) to behind the drivers front wheel, up behind the headlight (drivers side) to intercooler and up accross the top of the engine to the inlet manifold. Check the pipes on the route above for secureness and leaks.

If you mean where the black pipe goes inside the alloy thing (EGR) then no there is no jubile clip. There is a seal inside there though. If you remove the spring clip it pulls out. The clip or pipe may be worn. Do you have any oil leaking from the joint?
