What intake manifold you have? Stock? It might be cracked.

Your telling us all these things but we still have no idea what your setup is!

We need some pictures and some specific details about what you have installed on the car to properly help you. Details like what turbo manifold, turbo specs (size specs, wastegate specs, etc), intercooler piping size, blow off value configuration (recirculated or vented), injector size, MAF configuration (blow through or suck through) and who tuned it!

Is the car even tuned for the turbo and/or bigger injectors you should have?
