Okay so I feel like a giant ass. I ave my car back together and I wanted to make sure my turbo was getting oil so I had a friend hold the feed line in front of a bottle.

I told him as soon as he sees oil coming out of the feed line to tell me. I fire up the car and 2 seconds later there's oil coming out of the line.

I just thought about it now and do you guys think that there is any way I could have starved my turbo by doing this? The car was literally on for 2-3 seconds before I turned it off.

I wouldn't think so,because think of it like this . When u first start the car n the moring the oil has to pump out the block and to the turbo. So as long as it wasn't running for long and u didn't rev on it it should be fine. Also y didn't you undo the drain line ?

it should be ok... but u are supposed to prime turbos before you install ur oil lines so even the first few seconds of the car running the turbo has oil.

it it should be ok...
