Not if it is an early '03.
While the early '03 does have a slightly different oil supply line, it will work on the later model turbos. Here is a pic showing the difference, which is the connection of the supply line to the oil cooler cover.

This style should be replaced simply because the flexible stainless steel portion of the line can develop a restriction to the oil flow.
Problem with that is, to update this line to the newest style would require the replacement of the oil cooler cover ($$$/time).
The oil drain line will work, but for the relatively low cost of a new line, it should be replaced. It has been updated a few times since '03, and is a much better design (it is now mandrel bent to maintain the inner circumference on the bent portions of the line, to increase oil flow).
