Default not idling,stalling out 99 civic ex

well i start my car it idles real low like 400 rpm then when i rev it up and let go it stalls out. i can hear the turbo spool up im thinking its something with my spark plugs and ignition. i pulled my stock plugs at like .045 or something and they were black they werent like that before i put them in to boost.. then i put my step 1 colder plugs in gapped at .028 and it still did the same thing except it idled even lower like 300rpm and then i revved it up to about 3000 and it died..it will also die if it idles for like longer then 10 seconds and it strugles bounces up and down between 200-800rpm Those plugs were kind of black too but not as bad cuz i didnt run it as long as my stock plugs . i am running a fmu..chrysler turbo with in.waste.... its pissing me off cuz ive been working on my turbo for 3 weeks installing it and like 3 days trieing to fix this problem .. i really need help fast so i can get to school on monday . so please help me out the best you can thank you.

i just went to petsmart for more check valves and i put them in becuase i had it the wrong way my car idled pretty good then i took it for a spin i drove it shifted at 2000 rpm for like 2 minutes then i hit on the gas and my car was slower then it was without a turbo.. i noticed smoke coming from my turbo so i pulled over in my neighborhood and i switched it off . i think i might have a oil leak or something but now my spark plugs are showing to lean... im so confused

but first you need to get some better fuel managment before you kill your motor and then there will be no need to tune anything.
