Failure to follow these instructions can result in premature turbocharger failure, most failures occur due to incorrect installation or operation.

The installation tips listed here are general guidelines that apply to all turbos and do not include vehicle-specific details. Please refer to the authorized original equipment service manual for detailed installation instructions. If you do not have the experience, proper tools or manuals, please seek the services of a qualified technician. 

Before the install:

  • Inspect the oil supply and drain lines for degradation and cracking. Clean or replace all oil lines. 
  • NEVER put thread sealant on the turbo oil feed fitting. Using thread sealant will lead to turbocharger failure.

Installation guidelines:

  1. Install the turbocharger, taking care to ensure that no dirt or foreign material enters the turbocharger openings. Always, use new gaskets and O-rings (where applicable). Do not connect the oil supply line or the air cleaner duct yet.
  2. Pre-lube the turbocharger by pouring clean engine oil into the oil inlet hole of the turbo.  
  3. With your fingers, spin the compressor wheel several times to coat the turbocharger bearings with oil.  
  4. Pour more oil into the oil inlet hole to top it off. There may be some drainage, but this is of no concern. 
  5. Connect the oil supply line and the air cleaner duct. 
  6. Check for proper crankcase oil level. 
  7. With the fuel shut off to prevent engine start, crank the engine for 10-15 seconds, or until the gauge shows an oil pressure build up. 
  8. Start the engine and let it idle for 5-10 minutes. Do not rev the engine during this time. 
  9. Check the installation for any oil leaks. 
  10. Drive with low boost/light throttle until properly tuned. (DO NOT WIDE OPEN THROTTLE WITHOUT A PROPER TUNE)
