Edit: just saw your pics. Oh dear.

If the blue hose connected to wastegate side (not the top one with missing banjo-nipple, where did that one go?) is open, turbo will deadhead and (if safety switch is working) you will expirience "dash-in-your-face" syndrom. If somebody bypassed the switch (which many regrettably do when installing 1.0 bar spring), you will have no limit whatsover.

Check if hose going to side of WG is disconnected. If it is, check with the shop that did the engine work. They might have missed the hose or snapped it when lowering the engine.

Also, do the compression and leakdown test. Hopefully, your pistons are fine but if they are not you might want to talk with the shop.
Thank you for your time,
