How the ()*#$%)(*&$% do you get the oil return line on the bottom of the turbo seated?!?!? If I get the turbo in the right place it's because the oil line isn't in, when I get the oil line lined up I can't move the turbo....

Help!!

Not so fast.

Got everything buttoned back up, and having two issues.

Isuue #1: Feels like it's running through molasses, very little acceleration, like constant turbo lag. Would I need a reflash for switching to an 03 turbo? Or disco the batteries?

Issue #2: Got a steady drip from around that ill-fated returnl line. Let me guess, I get to take the whole thing apart and do it again?

Shouldn't have to. I don't know of any one that has.

As for the molasses, thats weird. Mine spooled faster then the old one.

I hear it sooner than the old one. I just don't have any boost, or at least thats how it feels.

Anything on the boost gauge?
Gauges aren't installed yet.

I haven't tried using the live monitor feature with my X3 yet though, not running a tune so didn't think to try that...

You'll want to find out if you are getting any boost, and if you are, how much, and how fast.

Just want to triple check here before I send the turbo back to the Ebay seller,

An 04 with an 03 turbo installed will not require a reflash, correct??

Correct. I did an 07 to an 03 and did not require a reflash.

It shouldn't have any lag and I gained (and others too) a couple lbs boost running the same files.
