Turbo installation question

I'm getting my 03 turbo replaced under warranty. I'm installing the updated drain tube and ordering the updated oil supply line. I'm going to change my oil and filter before starting the truck. My question is, should I pour some oil inside the turbo where the supply line connects before I attach the supply line and start it or does it matter? Would that keep it from starving the bearing of oil?

I always pour a little oil in the supply hole just to make sure it is primed. I don't want to ruin my turbo

I figured it would be a pretty good idea. I'll get it all installed and put some in before I hook up the supply line and start it for the 1st time. Thanks.

I used the original oil supply line and drain tube but apparently there is an upgraded one that you can get. There is also a turbo hardware kit that cost like 8 bucks that comes with the gaskets bolts etc....

Are you using the 06 pedestal?

I am not sure if you have an egr delete done, but if you do and have a solid up pipe, that will help for stability without having the third bolt. I did mine with the 05 pedestal and so far things have been fine.....

Here is a write up on cleaning the turbo.
