    The picture is a bit grainy...

    Was it fitted by a qualified or competent mechanic?

    Is that the blade knackered?
    if so i'd say something got sucked in.

    Did it still boost? smoke?

    was that a standard or uprated model ?

    also are you 100% sure turbo was primed before the car being started ?

    Is the main journal bearing and thrust bearing OK?, if either are excessively work then the compressor will have made contact with the housing and damaged it's self.

    My money's on it having not been primed.
