Got back to work

Ok, well after I while of not working on my cougar and went back to work. I managed to wire correctly the scavenge pump and turns on when key is on and off when key=off. My question still remains, of the two turbos, only one barely spins, the other one does not even move, now I know that car is just idling, is it normal? Shouldn't be there a little more movement?

Also, what happened last time was that oil accumulated because pump was not on. No smoke whatsoever. Should I be worried that my newly refreshed turbos need another rebuild? What do you guys recommend me to do?

It is a DIY setup, each turbo is mounted to a separate header. Both turbos were rebuild. Problem I had at the beginning was that the pump was not working (not wired right) and had the car running for about 5 mins and after that haven't turned it on again! Car does not smoke and yes, turbine could be spin freely. I am guessing I will have to get the passenger turbo off (the one that doesn't spin) and inspect it. I hope that I don't need to rebuild it again! Pics are as follows.

This is the passenger turbo when turned on the pump, there is oil coming from the exhaust
