Intercooler pipes enlarge under boost, that's normal. That's why they have the metal rings on them.

 Did the hose swell before the  work was done?  sounds like a gasket was put in differently than intended causing a blockage

I'm sure I put exhaust manifold gasket and inlet on properly there is only one way they can go on to fit the bolts no other gaskets were involved I can also hear the turbo spooling up as well

Normally if you have too much pressure it will back off the turbo or bleed some of the pressure off.  Has something changed with the boost control?  Is there blockage in the intercooler?

Im thinking something didn't go back together the way it was before, check all of the connections on the turbo and waste gate to make sure something isn't swapped, loose or disconnected.   Im not familiar with the Ford turbos but most turbos Ive had have a waste gate and if the control is messed up then it could overboost which would cause the swelling - not a good thing as you can tell.

 When a new issue happens after a job, the first thing I check is the last thing I worked on.  If it was normal and then not something changed.  Step back and look you will find it.

Sounds like something got in side . The do sell Re-coned units, The amount of the core deposit depends on how much of the turbo they can reuse.
