That's like asking "what happens when the brakes break, is it like having no brakes at all, or do you have some braking?". As will all complex systems, there are many, many failure modes, and the resulting symptoms will depend on the failure mode. There aren't many turbo failure modes which result in total engine failure, but there are some. -- Grunff
