make sure that u use the right copper washers when removing and replacing a turbo. i know it seems straight foreward but u may find like me that u go to a well known and trusted workshop and get what u think are the right washers only to have them slightly different. DONT just try and fudge it with the ones u were given. when dealing with turbos there are no second chances.
if all else fails take it to get it done professionally

also it is a good idea to have the lines pressure tested for leaks if using old lines as the metal (obviously being heated and cooled many times) does tend to become brittle.

my 2 cents, hope these tips are useful to some people.
