    Sent it to an engine place.

    Cracked piston 1. Two teeth missing from the timing gear. $7k to get it rebuilt, + the removal/refit fees. Ouch.

    Got the turbo off and it has a fair bit of freeplay. Compression test shows no compression on front cylinder. Rear three all around 380, but wasn't cranking exceptionally fast.
