Installation is the opposite of removal. Once you get it installed, disconnect power from the coil, get in your car and crank it over a few times to "prime" the oil and coolant lines. This is going to get oil cycling through the oil inlet and outlet as well as coolant through the inlet and return lines before you actually start the car.

Once you've cranked the car a few times, connect power to the coil and start the car. You're going to want to burp the coolant from the radiator and motor. Once you get the coolant burped, you're going to want to let the car warm up to operating temp to check for any leaks that you might have.

If you don't find any leaks, it's time to shut the car off, reset the ECU, re-connect and go test out your brand new boost.

I'd suggest taking it easy for the first 100 or so miles just to be safe.

If anything fails, more than likely you'll know that something is wrong way before 100 miles, so anything afterwards (theoretically) you should be all good.

Happy Boosting

What actually happens when you "Blow your turbo"?
