Cry Like A Baby Replaced blown turbo now gt won't start any ideas??

Hi all my turbo blew on saturday whilst driving pulled over imediatly
Ive today fitted a recon turbo hoping it will be ready to use again but the car would not start used easy start and it started to run sounding very lumpy loads of movement from the engine as well as White/BLue smoke coming from exhaust which I put down to excess oil from when the turbo blew turned off car and then tried to restart but no joy again.
im now thinking 1 or 2 cylinders have failed not sure what to do now any ideas?
I'm thinking recon engine or a secondhand one as I don't want to scrap my beloved gt!

Any help really appreciated?

Thank you
