Renault Laguna 2 - New Turbo,No Boost*FIXED*

Ok a week ago the turbo died. It did the whole oil through the intake thing so I had to stall the car on the hard shoulder of the motorway. Luckily only lost about 1/3 to 1/2 of the oil and the motor runs fine now with the new turbo .
BUT........ It has now got no real power and I put some of this down to oil all over the cat. But it feels like there is almost no boost and the coil / fault light comes on intermittently when I accelerate so I have to assume it is not the EGR or air flow sensors as it is OK at a constant speed. Any suggestions on where to look. I will look at the vaccum pipe in the morning to see if that is connected or crimped/trapped on anything so the waste gate is stuck open. It will be awkward as I have the RX4 but any of the 1.9 DCI motors can I think have the same problem so if anyone had a similar problem please give me some suggestions.

Thanks in advance guys......
