sadly my r-tard of a roomie with a BROKE *** mk3 Supra pushed my **** out and his **** in the garage and so I gotta wait till tomorrow for him to swap them back. BUT then i plan to change oil, install turbo, run.... BTW whats the best way to prep the turbo after install last time I unplugged the CAS so the sparks wouldnt fire but it would still crank so oil would get in the turbo and such.... any better ways to approach this?

i really like this article, not sure how much of it is true or not but I found it from a company that sells/rebuilds turbos in NC

It suggest just pulling the coils so the car will turnover but not spark...

4. Prime the oil system by cranking the engine over (WITHOUT STARTING IT) for 10-15 seconds, and repeat this step 3-5 times minimum. There are many ways to make sure that your car will not start, you can unplug the coil wire on vehicles with distributor-style ignition, or on vehicles with direct fire ignition, you can disconnect the coil packs, or the ignition relay. It is VERY important that your car DOES NOT START while pre-oiling the turbo.

I just took out the spark plugs so that way there was no way that the turbo would turn and the oil would prime the lines. Just the way that I did it.

Way easy to pull the relay or coil plug. I stick with those methods myself.

unplugging the CAS will make the car turn-over and not spark and pretty sure not spray gas cus the ECU wont see that the engine is cranking

You can pull the igniter (pax side of engine bay) for an easy way of turning over without firing.

Unplugging the CAS will allow you to crank the engine, but will not spark or spray fuel. At least this is from what I have heard and confirmed from a few compression tests I have done. It will also throw a code.

I doubt there would be any concern with the fuel still being "active". The important thing is that you wouldn't want any exhaust going through the turbine and spinning it without initial lubrication.

How bad would be the downfall if the Turbo was installed without initial lubriication?

Well, I didn't give mine any initial lubrication and it smokes like a SOB! Coincidence? I have no idea...

If you have already screwed up but don't see any problems, I wouldn't worry about it. If you have not screwed up yet, then I would make sure I lubed it!

Actually, it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to drip some oil in the turbo to start with. What could it hurt?

The second you turn the key and the engine catches the turbo is going to have plenty of oil. The split-second is didn't have oil isn't going to harm anything. If anything you can pull the feed off and drip some in.

Can't see where it would make any difference.

I went right with the synthetic, dropped some in the top of the turbo, started it and let it idle with the drain line loose so I could check oil flow before tightening the clamp.
