Question 04 duramax 6.6 turbo Problem HELP

I have an 04 vin 2 VDT turbo 6.6liter diesel. PROBLEM, I am getting an inter cooler leak code. but i can not find the leak.

my truck is doing this: While driving it easy, it runs and drives just fine. but when i tromp on the accelerator, the tranny down shifts as it is supposed to, at the same time the turbo is supposed to engage but it does not. it sounds and feels like it is trying to. at this time white smoke is coming out of the exhaust. when i let off the accelerator i get a short burst from the turbo.

i have been told it could be the EGR valve, map sensor, waste gate. the only code i am getting is the inter cooler.

I'd like some advice before taring this apart
