reconditioned turbo now problems

i reconditioned my turbo, whoever said it was an easy job should be shot! it's a ***** getting it to mount back up. Any who when I crank the truck It sounds like i have an exhaust leak I elt around the down pipe and feel nothing. based solely on whats coning out of my exhaust sound i can hear the turbo whistle like normal. I know the center shaft spun freely as it was the first thing i checked when i put it back together and the last thing i checked before I bolted up the sir filter. The unison ring and actuator both showed very little wear and moved freely prior to assembly. I replaced both O-rings on drain tube and gasket up top. was i supposed to fill the turbo back up with oil prior to installing the fill line?

What should i check to diagnose this problem. i don't want to ruin the turbo.
Please help as i'm riding my bike till this gets resolved.

Do not need to fill with oil before hand.
