[turbobike] Problem

I have put together a 1394 GPZ Turbo.  I have completed my turbo
installation.  The problem that I am having is that when I turn the motor
over to be cranked I am looking at the turbo wheel inside the turbo and it
is not spinning.  The motor has compression, but why isn't the turbo wheel
spinning.  I have a triple stage wastegate on this, but I have it plugged
off.  The other thing could be the turbo unit.  There is no play or slack
in my unit.  If you take your hand and turn it, it rolls smoothly just like
any other turbo unit.  We could not get this motor to crank.  I understand
if the wheel is not moving then the turbo is not sending gas to the motor.
Has anyone ever seen this symptom before.
