hey guys,
I have a brand new stock turbo and I'm going to switch it out with the old one. Is there anything I need to know before venturing into this project :confused013: such as tips, certain tools, do's and dont's, etc? or the easiest way possible.....:thumbsup:
Any info is much appreciated.
Thanks, Ethan

replace any and all gaskets that you come in contact with, clean any flanges you can get to with a wire wheel and tap for a thermal couple if you haven't already. That about covers it though. You may want to replace the sealing rings on the banjo's too, but that is totally optional.

Def replace the sealing rings. When my turbo was replaced the dealer didnt replace them and 5k miles later I have a heck of an oil leak.
