              also fill the filter with oil before fitting and i disconnect the coilpack and turn the engine over 1st to prime the turbo.

                thats good practice but no harm is done if you dont fill the filter or even crank the engine before..

                  seems fairly easy, may even try it myself but then perhaps not always a good thing for service history!?

                  not cranking the engine or filling the filter shouldnt cause any harm at all

                      thing is, with modern and well built cars these days, service history is something that doesnt bother alot of people.. also whats stopping me from getting my mate to stamp it for me FOC
