The most important aspect of turbo installation is to verify your oil system is functioning properly. This is done by priming the turbo and observing good flow (see below picture).
I follow and recommend driving the new turbo around town for about 50 miles off boost, not necessarily to break in the turbo but to observe all is well without sending a turbine wheel through the engine at redline as that lost exhaust nut fires out the muffler or puking oil all over the pavement as the oil passeges clog up with red silicone gasket sealer the mechanc's assistant slopped on.
