Be prepared for the b*tch bolt! It's on the underside of the turbo and secures it to a brace. You need a 3' extension and a 14mm swivel socket to get it out.
Don't reuse the metal gaskets or the copper O-Rings on the feed/return lines.
Make sure you keep track of, and use all of the factory washers if you want to keep the turbo bolts from getting lose.
Park the car for a couple days before you go to change it and liberally soak every bolt you'll be working on with penetrating oil so it has time to work.
Be prepared to break a bolt or stud anyway (A pain, but mostly a downtime issue if you have to take it to be machined out).
MAPerformance has a good selection of OE gaskets, bolts, studs otherwise OEM at the dealer is always a safe bet.
Good luck!

hey boss another question, how would you go by priming the turbo. should i use like a syringe with motor oil going through it to lubricate or just install and turn over a couple times before actually turning the car on

A guy on EvoM just had his turbo basically come un-bolted from the car because he didn't use those factory spring washers. Make sure and hold on to those.

It'll get oil really quickly. Nearly as quickly as if you had just done an oil change. If it makes you feel better, turning it over for 10 seconds with the injectors unplugged would get everything fully lubricated without any spooling up of the turbo.
