help with my subaru popping

hi very new to website so not sure how and were to post but ive got an l reg subaru wrx import engine went bang and its been in mts motorsports having a replacement engine i staged 2'd the original head but bottom end was knackered so bought the 2.5 2006 wrx bottom end and had all this put together with the turbo getting reconed too , theye told me they had to remap the ecu as it was a 2.5 engine but now ive got car back its popping and banging, im obviously not going above 4000rpm as running it in but it wont even get to that it without spluttering, theyve now told me i need to get a new 2.5 loom and ecu for it to run fine but they told me at first that they wouldnt need this and can run the engine on original loom are they just trying to squeeze more money out of me? i assumed if they told me they was going to map it then theoretacly it should be running fine no? has any one done this conversion and do they no what my next step is
