whats an oil restrictor? drain is good, nice smooth downhill drain. the oil feed line is just the -3an braided hose with a 90deg. bend fitting. so i dont think there is a restrictor

my turbo smokes a little bit sometimes, its because i don't have the best drain or a restricter :lol: its a cheap turbo and i'm going to completely change the setup soon, so i'm not worried about it.

anyhow, if i were you, i'd check into getting a restricter. Honda's have way too high of oil pressure for most turbos.

Yeah I would get a restrictor, that would be a guess to the problem.

so what if you bought a kit and it was made for a honda? should you still get an oil restrictor?
