My guess would be the turbo itself - under load is when it will spool, and gears 1 through 3 are high enough in the RPM band to spool that larger turbo. Also accounts nicely for the smoking. Probably on it's way out - sucking oil through the shot bearings and making nasty noises. Typical of turbo failure.

well i checked the PS and it is leaking. somwhere down below though. I cant find where exactly. turbo is ok. ps fluid was getting on the exhaust making the smoke. looked like turbo was smokin. through some more ps fluid and the whine went away.
Probably leaking at the rack - the pumps rarely fail. Just swap out the whole rack.
