dude talking to my Air Force Vehicle Maint. guru he said you have one of two (or worse yet both) problem(s),
First thing you need to do is check the oil level, reason is the engine oil is used to pressurize the fuel injectors and oil pressure is critical to proper fuel timming and atomization. if you ran the oil back into the new turbo and didn't add any after then the oil level may be too low, causing problems with the injection.
second your rings may be damaged if you have had any liquid fuel sitting in the cylinder when the engine was cranked.
So go look at your dipstick, smell for diesel and add oil (of the correct viscosity) if needed.
As far as unburnt fuel getting to your exhaust -- we are suspecting you have a stuck valve, which may be why cylinder #3 is dead, unless the compression checked out.
