    i thought the oil and water goes through the turbo if thats the case theirs a bit more work than just unbolt turbo and rebolt it back on

    its a low pressure garrett turbo so no water lines, just an oil feed...

    unbolt downpipe, remove air intake pipe, unbolt oil feel and oil drain pipes, unbolt turbo from manifold... refit is reverse of that... not much to it really

    pour fresh oil direct into the the turbo oil intake to lube it properly before reinstalling the oil feed.. This is important, you do not want to start the engine with a dry turbo.. however if your fitting a secondhand unit it will already have some residual oil in it so will not be dry.. bad oil is biggest killer of turbos...
