power loss

I have an87 300TD. I have a power loss. After driving turbo cars for 15 years it feels like the turbo is not kicking in. My mechanic thinks it is in the injectors. I would like to explore all angles before having him get into the injectors

Can you hear the turbo spinning? Rev the engine high with your head under the hood and immediately shut it off. Turbo should spool for several seconds.
