Turbocharger Fitting Checklist

Correct turbocharger fitment involves more than following the turbocharger fitting instructions that are specific and supplied with each turbocharger.  

You should replace oil supply lines and fittings. These lines often become plugged with decomposed oil which restricts oil flow and drainage. 
Do not use silicone or thread tape.

Make sure all openings to the turbo are open and not plugged or capped off. 
Shut off fuel or disable ignition and crank the engine for at least 15 seconds or until oil pressure is raised. 
Allow the engine to fast idle (1,000 RPM) for 3 - 5 minutes to seat turbo seals.

Always let the engine idle for 3 -5 minutes before shut down, otherwise the turbo will continue to spin without oil lubrication and pressure. ʉ۬When changing oil, be sure to prime the oil filter.
