    If the timing was out it wouldn't run, the pump timing doesn't matter it can be anywhere coz its common rail, it sounds to me like its an intercooler problem tbh.

    Something has to be blocked in the air intake line to cause the hose to be collapsing when there's a demand placed on it. White smoke is caused by water in the cylinders normally but in this case I'd ignore that for now and find the blockage first...

    TBH your garage seems to be taking a shot in the dark by the sound of things, first it's turbo or intercooler, then it's timing and now it's turbo oil seals.

    I'm thinking the intercooler has colapsed and is restricting air flow.

    Surely there are some fault codes showing

    Just to make sure the turbo is primed with lots of clean oil and obviously that whoever is doing it isnt a knuckle dragging ape.
