Turbocharger seals, have the turbo rebuilt. p0011? VCT is this the code usually caused by oil starvation (Turbo drawing oil) due to a partially clogged oil pick up tube this common on 1.8 turbo and will interfere with the oil pressure. The cam timing is controlled by a solenoid that depends on oil pressure.

with the kids, you have already spent enough on this thing- time to get another car, cut your losses- and forget the whole "turbo" thing-
