How are you noticing a leak at the slip joint?

Dose it sound like you have an exhaust leak at idle and or up until the waste gate opens?

Might also check the area at the Y going into the turbo. They like to crack there. At least mine did. If so, might check the turbo hot side. If a piece brakes off, it can chew up the turbine.

I would not expect that slip joint to leak enough to hear or make much of a difference in spool. Spool can also be lazy between shifts if the BOV/Compressor Bypass Valve function is not working as this can stall the turbo between shifts. Also, if the turbo is going-- it can get lazy. Been there and there to.
