New Kokeln Turbo not spinning freely

Purchased this Kokeln here on the board not too long ago. Finally got the car back together, ran AN-3 oil feed lines for the Turbonetics center section and fired up the engine and did a CO 3% tune and took the car around the block. Absolutely no getup and go. Anemic. Revs to 3000, 4000 and nothing. Check all the plumbing, no exhaust leaks...and it occurs to me there's none of that turbo whine especially with the zork.... Pulled the pipe and low and behold the Kokeln is not spinning.... Could this have been bad from the get go? It arrived looking unused and seemed to be as it was advertised. The impeller turns with the hand but as you can see doesn't wind up at all under exhaust pressure. Have a look at the vid. Any thoughts here?
