the oil feed line is pressurized. how much ever your oil pressure is is how much pressure the oil in the line will have. You don't have to prime the turbo.

its a good idea to crank the engine to get oil to the turbo before firing a fresh one up. i normally get some oil in the turbo right before i fire one up.

No need, doesnt hurt though. In the split second it takes for you to crank the ignition the oil pump spins and sends oil to the turbo so there is oil there before any exhuast or heat gets there to start moving the shaft.

if you've ever cranked car with oil line unhooked you would see why it is not necessary. it will spray 1/2 quart out before you can turn car off. makes a big mess. lol
