General consensus is that leakdown is the test to conduct. My understanding is that you get to opertating temp (important), shut down, pick a cylinder, pull the plug, rotate crank so that valves are closed on cylinder to be tested, insert tester and pressure up.

Turbo, you can check shaft play (axial and radial) from the exhaust, visually check for FOD and look for oil in the compressor housing.
