Replaced my turbo today with a reman, Hard(er) starting now?

Hey, I just got a new remaned turbo put on my truck today (woulda got a 38r but the extra 600 would hurt with my 1400 tuition bill sitting here next to me!).

Anyways, when I first fired up the truck after the install it cranked for a good long while, barked for maybe 10-15 seconds and died, Fired it back up after cranking again for not as long and it was fine. I figured it was from my oil crossover being off and bleeding out some oil while the truck sat over night.

Anyways, I drove it home everything is fine truck drives just like it did (little more noise with the wicked wheel) but no CEL's or odd behavior.

I got home and let my pooch out. decided to fire it up again and it started fine but it cranks like one more second than it used to (i'm particularly anal enough that I can tell it takes just a bit more cranking than it did before)

Long read, and I'm sorry, but does anyone have any insite for me? or could there just be an air pocket/bubble somewhere in the HPO lines that just need to be worked out?

Thanks for the help!

-Matt

Turbo doesn't have any effect on starting. I'd look at the oil system, or give it a little time for the air to bleed out.

That's what I figured, as I stated the HPx line was off over night and bled out some oil. And my drive home from my buddys shop where I did the work is only ~8 minutes away, so it never even got hot/warm really.....I'll give it a day or so. Tonight I have class, so that's a good little drive to campus and back home.
