Yes, very easy to do. The only thing to check is that the oil feed connector is the same

I dont use sealant. It should mate flat. If not you can get a metal gasket for it.

Hi ,
one good thing to do when you replace a turbo is to put some oil in the CHRA , the cast iron part of it where you fix the feeding pipe  , to lubricate the shaft during the time the engine oil comes to it . This prevents the turbo to turn without oil .

Or, crank over the engine with the ignition disabled to get some oil flowing round it.
