Help Whineing Turbo

My 156 1.9 jtd 2003 will not go pass 3000 revs. As soon as i hit 80 mph the engine management light comes on. After i go pass 85mph it goes out and i have to drop to less than 80 mph to stop it coming on again. But no whineing noise. It went to a local Alfa garage and they said that the turbo had been replaced by some-one previously who had put on a 16 value one instead of a 8 value one and the pipes were all round the wrong way. The pipes were changed and when i have collected my car today. They have said it is the turbo. It still does not go over 3000 revs or above 80 mph as before but now the turbo whines. What do you think i should do?? Change the pipes back to how they were and have a quieter drivebut not exceed 80 mph or replace the turbo?? Is this going to fix my problem. Can some one give me some good advice please
