Default Turbo install

I am getting ready to install a fp 18g and was just curious if I should know or buy anything in advance. Specifically oil lines.

Gaskets for both sides of the turbo and coolant for when you spill it immediately come to mind. It's not a bad idea to pick up some heat wrap, turbo blanket and heat reflecting tape(or any combination of the 3 to help underhood temps and to keep the IC cool.

just make sure you dont have an oil restrictor in the turbo side banjo. if you have a pre 05 swap non sti you should be fine. i went with a fp line to be safe as its longer and pretty much garunteed to fit.

if you order the fp line, call them dont do it on their website. youll save some money on at least shipping

If this is my old turbo you bought the stock oil line and banjo will fit just fine.

the lines on the turbo will look just like the factory lines. so just make sure you hook them up like factory and you will be good to do. also dont forget about the oil return line on the bottom of the turbo. it can be kinda pesky sometimes. if its not connected, prepare to lose tons of oil.

yeah you should be fine, you probably wont really lose any oil, I don't think I did on either of the swaps I've done, but couldn't hurt to have a little extra of course. the only thing I would say to remember is your line with the restirctor haha I had mine backwards at first and couldn't build much boost. but sounds like you'll be fine. have fun!!

Well if you get some extra time mush04, you can always stop by Saturday morning early. It's getting tuned at 5 pm on Saturday night so I have to have it all done by then

When I do the banjo bolt I hand tighten it then prime the system with oil and make sure a little bit of oil comes out the banjo then snug it down, this way you know your turbo has oil before startup.

I always change my oil on a turbo install, I plugged my coolant lines the first time which will get coolant all over, the second time I changed my oil and coolant which makes it much easier in my opinion.

A little bit more on this. I'm new to this what's the banjo bolt, how do I prime it?

On the passenger side in the trunk under the trunk liner is your fuel pump module which I unplug to ensure no fuel gets to the engine, I usually crank the engine for 10 seconds like 3 or 4 times to prime your turbo. The banjo bolt is the bolt that threads into the port directly ontop in the middle of the turbo. In my opinion the turbo and injectors are some of the easiest things to replace.

Yeah, it'll just burn off. If you dumped a gallon maybe drain it out but a quick spray will just be a few seconds of white smoke.
