Yes. Would I have more time right now, I would guesstimate a pressure/station diagram of this one for checking some obscure feeling I have: That the flow directions you painted are not working well with the total pressure inside your engine (eg, air/exhaust flowing from low pressure towards high pressure). I can't really use absolute numbers there, but this should work on a qualitative perspective: if a turbine stage needs to have zero pressure drop, it can't perform work. If your turbine would need to compress air, it can't work as well, it consumes work.

Do you mean as drawn or in general? Keep in mind that this is a very rough drawing by someone with no artistic skills, not a rigorous blueprint.
