Warning Please Read The Following Before Installing Your Turbocharger
Turbocharger Installation Instructions
Replace oil supply and drain lines, as failure to do so will invalidate warranty
Change Engine Oil
Carefully inspect the air cleaner, air cleaner duct, and the exhaust manifold for any foreign material. Objects left in these areas can severely damage the turbocharger immediately on engine startup.
Remove old gaskets and gasket material from the exhaust manifold, the oil supply line and oil drain line, flanges. Inspect these areas for cracks, flatness, or erosion.
Inspect the oil supply and drain lines. Make sure that there are no kinks or any other type of restriction or clogging in either line.
Install the turbocharger, taking care to insure that no dirt or foreign material enters the turbocharger openings. Use new gaskets and O-rings (where used). At this time do not connect the oil supply line or the air cleaner duct.
Pre-lube the turbocharger by pouring a small amount of clean engine oil into the oil inlet hole of the turbo. Spin the compressor wheel by hand several times to coat the turbocharger bearings with oil.
Connect the oil supply line and the air cleaner duct.
Check for proper crankcase oil level.
With the fuel shut off to prevent engine start, crank the engine for 10-15 seconds, or until the oil inlet gauge shows oil pressure build up.
Start the engine and let it idle for 5-10 minutes. Do not rev the engine during this time.
