If it had a new injector pump fitted , then that would have included a timing control vale which is part of the pump assembly. I think there are a few "tiny" fibs being told here by the seller, but don't really know in which area (yet).

Sounds like someone stuffed something up when fitting the pump..like the timing. not hard to fix and happy to check it out for you if you want an independent inspection of it prior to purchase

First thing I would look at would be the good old vacuum lines to the boost sensor and turbo.

The TCV fault and boost problem may be a simple fix but it may also mean the vehicle has big problems. This is about the only place that you will get an honest opinion so if they continue talking crap then you are better walking away. You at least need someone who knows what they are doing have a look at it.

Was it a new pump or a reconditioned pump fitted? A reconditioned pump would not have a new TCV unless it was faulty at the time of teardown. Either way, you are not getting the full story. The TCV can be fitted on vehicle but it is an expensive part. Is the engine quite rattly? That is a common symptom of a faulty TCV.
