Default First time turbo swap

Had my turbo rebuilt by a member of NASIOC and I'm getting ready to put it back on, never done this before. I've been reading and reading but could ya'll double check me and maybe throw out some tips I may have missed?

I've got 2 new OEM gaskets, 2 new copper washers for the banjo bolt, and all my parts/tools layed out. I'm pretty sure I've got the process for priming right (put a little oil in the inlet/pull #11 fuse and crank). I'm also planning on doing a mechanical boost gauge install and relplacing the purge control valve but I figure I'll wait until the turbo is on and verified before I get into that. Just thinking out loud...

I could never get my oil and coolant hoses to reseal well after my swap. Now I have a nappy looking green piece of napa 1/2" heater hose going from my turbo to the top coolant reservoir. It would be wise to at least replace the clamps, if not the hoses themselves.

Don't be surprised if you snap a bolt on the hotside/downpipe, they go through a lot of heat cycles. I sheared one.

You might as well do the PCV while you're in there if you haven't recently, it's a sub-$5 part that will be easy to get to while you have parts removed from that part of the car.

this is the time to get a braided oil feed line, it makes it easier than possibly breaking the original hard line while trying to line up the banjo bolt on the turbo.

is there anyway I can check for leaks before I finish? I can't start her up until tomorrow because the previous owner had someone weld the piss out the exhaust so it's one fu##ing piece and i can't lift it solo.
