Aircraft Manufacturing Experience / Aircraft Mechanic / Aerospace Engineer checking in a throwing down my two cents here!

I worked on a flightline for a major light aircraft manufactuer for 8 years and we never broke-in turbochargers. The engines were filled with oil and started. The turbos had a squirt of oil in them during engine assemble in the engine shop before the engines were hung, but no special considerations were givin to them once they were installed. The new engines probably had some assembly lube in them before they left the engine manufacturer, but we added just the oil that would serve the engine until the first oil change at 100 hours. Filters catch what will damage the engine and the turbos can survive engine start fellows.
