  With obvious signs of incompetence (?) on the maintenence end my 
first guess is things are gunked up from wrong oil and a lot of coking.  
The problem area would be the screen in the valve cover.  Did you 
peek at the intake valves?  They are likely crudded up pretty heavily 
too.  Most likely some good oil or even some synthetic and some 
careful rapping it out a bunch should clear things up.  Kinda like 
Hagar's TD being all gunked up when he got it.  The KKK turbo 
is nearly identical to the Garret and should easliy be fine unless 
this little old lady rode it hard and shut it down right away a lot.
Turbo would be adding oil ALL the time too, rather than just at 
high rpm most likely.  Air cleaner and passages all nice and clear? 
Don't want any vacuum between the air snorkel and the impeller.
