Make sure to pour about a qt of oil back in the valley. Don't freak out if it is a real bear to get started and then runs like crap after it finaly does start. It can take 1/4 tank of fuel some times. I let mine run on high idel for about 30 min in the drive and it was fine. You will have to get the air out of the HP oil system and it can take some doing. Best to remove the FICM relay and crank untill you get ICP over 500 PSI.
Do Not forget to refill the valley with a qt of oil to prime the HPOP. You MUST keep that area under and around the oil cooler super clean, not even lint can be left inside. At 3000 psi of ICP pressure ANYTHING left inside will damage your IPR screen and valve. This is the most comon cause of complications after this type of repair.
Make sure the turbo is 100% lined up before you tighten the clamps to the pipes. These clamps WILL NOT pull it into alignment. If you don't get it right befor the clamps are put on it will leak ans you will have to do it over.
GOOD LUCK , post pics for us....
