The MAP sensor is from the old engine so proven ok, but the manifold pressure seems to be a constant 96kpa up until about 2500 revs when it starts to to climb. The turbo however is working from about 1600 revs, so why no increase in pressure until 2500? any ideas?

Have you had the turbo electro-valve out to check its working ok? Then the second thing to check is the Vacuum system. The turbo electro-valve alters the amount of boost generated by the turbo under control of the engine ECU via the vacuum system and the turbo electro-valve. If the variable vanes of the turbo were not being correctly controlled, the system won't see the boost pressures that its expecting and could well throw a boost pressure error (P1160)?
