Are you supposed to replace the supply or return line?! Because I bought a new supply line, and it was freakin $70. The return line is another $118!

God damn!

feed line would be a good idea to replace because they can get clogged..but if your engine is not a sludge engine then its prob clean

return line..no reason to replace really

It'd be a good idea. Chances are, if your old turbo blew up, part of it was oil.

My old one didn't blow up, it holds boost like a champion at 120k miles. The old owner didn't get into all 5 pounds of boost much.

Glad to hear I don't need to drop another $120 on lines.

Install will be next Wednesday more than likely. When I logged my O2 sensor voltages via VAG-COM they were within spec, so I'm not going to bother. If you're going to do it, remember that you only really need to change the pre-cat sensor. The post-cat is only for emissions. Save yourself $100.

I just got the supply line/gaskets/hardware in from ecstuning the other day. The only stuff I need to get is oil/filter. If I can find some G12 coolant locally that isn't $27 a gallon (stealership) I'll probably pick that up too. I have about 2 gallons downstairs, but its diluted a good amount and I'm sure the mercury will be dropping below 32 for another few weeks.

I'm gonna take some pictures of everything I have and post them up soon.
