Check for clogged air filter, an obstruction or leak in the duct that joins the turbo unit outlet to the intake manifold.An intake manifold gasket leak, a leak or obstruction in the exhaust system or a waste-gate problem.
The vacuum line is either blocked or there is vacuum leak .Also get the fuel pump and spark plugs checked.------
---Also other possibility is compressor surge.The turbo is spooling up too fast and sending too much air into the engine for it to take. You can fix it with a larger A/R exhaust housing. You can also fix it with a surge-ported compressor housing.It is not your blow off valve. But the valve will often open when you get compressor surge since it sends very high boost spikes into the inter-cooler pipes.Compressor surge can damage the turbo bearings, Get it checked.----------
This will help.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

The wastegate may be mal-adjusted now after fitting the new turbo, it sounds like it is shunting boost pressure down the exhaust thru the wastegate valve which is vacuum operated.
