Is there a way to disable my turbocharger? I would like to prevent it from engaging until I have the time to determine why it is screeching and fix it.

NO - The turbo is an integral part of the exhaust-intake system that uses a series of wategate valves, switches, and compensators to deliver the proper amount of boost to fuel ratio and keeps it all from exploding. If you could somehow convert it to a naturally aspirated engine I am sure it would cost more than replacing the turbo. Take your car to a shop and have them tell you what is wrong. Turbo failures are not that common. I saw a 78 300SD that had 900,000k on it that has had three new engines installed. The original turbo had never been replaced. The owner drove thousands of highway miles a week and always let the turbo cool after a hard run.
(This keeps the oil from burning onto the turbo bearings). I am not a mechanic or, an expert on turbos. This is just my $0.02 worth.

Do not drive this car until fixed!!!! The screeching turbo could let parts fly into the engine and blow it up!!
There are many turbo rebuilders out there. Look in the phone book, you should find one in your area.
