Power Max

I am going to install a powermax soon and I was wondering how do you prime the oil into the turbo?

So you prime the turbo outside of the truck?

Yes. While it sits on the bench, fill the hole where the oil-input tube goes and spin the turbine.
Do this until it's full. Once full, you are good to go.
If you don't, the bearings will be gone in under .5seconds.. (Or so I've read. I never have experienced it, b/c I always make sure they have plenty of oil in there)

I knew it was that. I dunno why I said Valkerye.. I guess b/c they both have to do with Hitler and his lil Nazis running around..
But I shoulda known it wasn't Valkerye b/c I HATE that movie.
I halfway like Ing.Bastrds
