the manifolds are the big issue.

some people say the turbos need oil restrictors at the end of the oil feed line as they cant handle the higher PSI the engines spit out thru feed lines. but, some people say they didnt need one....

just dont boost too hard at first. give it some good break in KM's, and have someone who knows turbo's install it.....

as with anything, it's only as good as the install and the knowledge behind it.

You should have restrictors at the begining of the feed line, if you have it at the turbo oil will be jetting into the turbo.

The wastegate is "probally" a tial 38mm style and its bolted to the mani with 2 screws, the part that breaks is the wastegate runner. Dont know if that clears it up any, not sure what your asking

ive never seen restrictors at the sandwich plate adaptor or t'd off from the oil pressure sensor...ive heard of oil starvation that route

any restrictor ive seen goes rite to the turbo..what do you mean jetting all its doing is lowering the psi the oils flowing into the turbo..

ball bearing turbos usually require restrictors...in any turbo you should use a restrictor if your fittings are -4an or -3an the oil pressure hondas produce is alot more than the turbo needs

put 85 psi through a 3/16 hose. now at the end of that hose close the end off to 1/16 what would happed?

now supply 85 psi to a 3/16 line **with a 1/16 opening** the line will fill, flow and pressre will drop as the opening will not be large enough to keep the supplied pressure across the line.

Direct from Precision Turbo:

Brian, Thanks for your inquiry. Typically on non ball bearing turbos, we will not recommend the use of an oil restrictor. In some very rare instances, the use of a restrictor is necessary. On ball bearing turbos, we recommend the use of an oil restrictor. Regards,
Joe @ Precision Turbo

Quoting Brian McGaugh
Hi,
I have a SC6152SP and I will be using it on my built Honda. As Hondas can make over 80psi of oil pressure I was wondering if I should be using an oil restrictor. I have been told both yes and no. Most, if not all, say that with a -4an feed line yes its need, then a lot of people I have talked to differ on a -3an feed some say its not needed some say yes use a .06" restrictor.
Can you help clarify when an oil restrictor is needed?
Thanks,

Brian McGaugh
