Legacy Turbo legacy 2nd engine woops!

yes unfortunatly i screwed up installing my kit and re-routed all of the oil to the turbo instead of some of it. Bad idea i seized my engine ! but i am having a new motor installed with the kit on it only this time it is done properly. My question is should i go ahead and try out the turbo kit or am i deep enough with having to replace the engine once allready that i shouldnt chance it.

Details on new motor.

Newer 60k mi EJ22 long block

it may be newer than 1994 idk if this is bad for the integrity of the engine under boost but i believe the motors are the same as the older N/A engines with 9.5:1 CR and open deck block. Are the new motors dual port heads like mine or will my wrx headers not work.

The mechanic said he would install the turbo on the new motor but every extra part he needs will obviously cost me a good amount. Trying to avoid spending any more money than i allready have to.
