All the VF turbos have assembly lube in them when new. It truly isn't necessary to prime the turbos or to crank the engine w/o ignition after installing a new turbo.

That being said, yes, like I've said above, I prime the turbos with Redline 10w30, and I also crank the motor with the ignition coils disconnected before I actually start the car.
