I understand. But, you knew the PO took the turbo off before selling it. That right there is a red flag too me that he probably didn't retune the car. Without a proper tune for a new turbo, bad things happen like you found out. You also knew there was a cheap ebay turbo on the car. Another bad sign. These are very unreliable to produce consistent, smooth boost. They are usually spiky. If you had bought it from a dealer rather then a private seller, and one which you knew he swapped turbos, this is an issue. Chalk it up to learning a valuable, expensive lesson. I'm not trying to be rude in any way, you yourself said it had a cheap, ebay turbo. And with any turbo/supercharger, a car with an improper tune is going to break something, most of the time it's the headgasket... I'm sorry for your expensive loss. Now it's time to tear it apart and put a new head gasket on it!!!
When I was going for my dyno tune, the mechanic put my 3bar sensors on in one garage and I had to drive my car 1/4 mile down the road to the dyno....he wouldn't even touch it and wanted to charge me $300 to tow it to his dyno garage. And he was the one tuning it!!! So I had to be extremely careful and feather the throttle to get it to the dyno....no boost at all!!! I did make it, and I was dyno tuned.
