Replacing my turbo - need last minute advice.

Long story short, I'm quite sure my turbo is cooked and I have bought a used one off Ebay along with one of the newly designed oil feed lines. I should have them shortly, and the only piece of the puzzle that I'm missing is whether there are any gaskets or anything else I will need to do the job.

I know several people here have swapped out a turbo, but no one has given full details on the job. There is no GM dealership near me or any online resource I've been able to find, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

I agree that it looks straighforward. The question becomes having all the gaskets and seals handy when doing it. You may want to look at the following site to obtain part numbers, then with the part numbers you can often find a better price at Rockauto or even Amazon.

There's also several coolant lines on both the turbo and the oil heat exchanger. The part the oil filter threads into. While your in there, maybe you replace some of those lines, or at least inspect them really well.

I believe the only way to get to some of those lines is to remove the turbo, and I'd rather have a few ounces of prevention while I'm in there, vs. doing a job again.

There's oil gaskets on the line out of the turbo into the oil pan that should also be replaced. I think some of the guys on the Sonic forum have pulled the turbo but no one has documented it. A full disconnection and removal is different than removal of the heat shields, visual inspection of the impeller and reinstall.
